1 Questionnaire: Domestic (Gender and Family) Violence Interventions STRENGTHENING TRANSNATIONAL APPROACHES TO REDUCING REOFFENDING (STARR) On behalf of The Institute of Criminology

2 STRENGTHENING TRANSNATIONAL APPROACHES TO REDUCING REOFFENDING (STARR) General Information & Instructions Questionnaire Guidelines This questionnnaire investigates what interventions are currently used to reduce reoffending in the field of domestic violence throughout the European Union. You have been carefully selected, through consultation with government and academic justice experts, as possessing knowledge about interventions to reduce domestic violence reoffending in your country. We therefore kindly ask you to take some time to complete the following questionnaire on one specific programme. If you are an expert on other domestic violence programmes as well, please use a different questionnaire for each programme. The majority of questions ask for simple multiple choice answers, asking participants to mark their answers clearly in boxes provided (by tick or cross). Questions will only require one answer (one tick or cross) unless otherwise stated. We are also interested in your experience and opinions of process and effectivenesss of delivering interventions to reduce reoffending. Therefore, we include a series of open ended questions throughout the questionnaire. Please answer these questions concisely and clearly. When you are unsure of the answer for example, when research results are requested we ask you to provide best estimates rather than leaving questions blank. Please answer all questions unless otherwise instructed. Should you have any queries with regards to completing the questionnaire, please feel free to contact the STARR research team at Once completed, please return this questionnaire to the following address: STARR Project, Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge, Sidgwick Avenue, Cambridge, England, CB3 9DA. 2
