Abstract

The study aims to analyse the evolution of costs generated by domestic violence during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Romanian space. The cost generated by violence is not well highlighted in Romania's budgets, however there are methods that may be used to quantify it. In our country, studies focused more on the analysis of the dimension of domestic violence, and less on the analysis of the costs generated by this phenomenon. However, an analysis of these costs was carried out in 2014 by the European Institute for Gender Equality, which estimated the costs of gender-based violence in the European Union. For this study I will use administrative data at the national level, which come from local entities with responsibilities in preventing and combating domestic violence. The study I propose will be an analysis of secondary data provided by the authorities, but will also contain comparative methods (compared to 2020, the year of the Covid-19 pandemic). The results will describe the evolution of the costs generated by domestic violence during the pandemic.
