A notepad with numbers

Economic research and economic evaluation of efforts for handling intimate partner violence and stalking is an unexplored area in Sweden. There is a lack of research on the economic effects of efforts within authorities of the judicial system and, to some extent, even social services. What are the costs if society does not collaborate on risk management within the police and social services? What would the costs be if they did?

The aim of this part of the project is to examine the cost-effectiveness from working with the new model RISKSAM. The study produces a baseline for the costs – for society and the individual – of intimate partner violence and stalking.

The study collects cost-diaries and obtains register extracts to learn more about the timeline in different cases from when a risk assessment is made until a long-term intervention is introduced.
