Law 1/2015, 15th January, to the eradication of gender violence and the domestic violence law 1/2015, 15th January, to the eradication of gender-based violence and of domestic violence since the General Council in its session of 15 January 2015 has approved the following: Law 1/2015 , 15 January, for the eradication of gender violence and domestic violence preamble in recent years societies have become aware of the drama of gender-based violence and of domestic violence and its consequences; for this reason, both in Europe and in the International has begun to work to eradicate and prevent this type of violence. The Principality of Andorra, this European and international leadership, it has adhered to the agreement of the Council of Europe on the prevention and the fight against violence against women and domestic violence.
The Organization of the United Nations in the IV World Conference of 1995 was to recognize that violence against women is an obstacle to achieving the goals of equality, development and peace, and that the enjoyment of human rights and undermines and violates fundamental freedoms. In addition, defined widely as a manifestation of the historically unequal power relations between women and men.
Faced with this social and institutional paradigm has been considered it was the right time for Andorra to approve a law for the prevention and eradication of these types of violence, but not only to comply with the international and European commitments, but also to pay our own Constitution and provide a legislative response to the social needs of the moment.
In this context, then, talk about gender-based violence and of domestic violence means place ourselves in front of a problem of great magnitude that encompasses multiple perspectives that require equally multiple responses pluridisciplinàries.
In recent years the problem of domestic violence has received a special treatment through Law 91/2010 of 16 December, which has been echoed from the guidelines and recommendations from international organizations, before the rejection that in recent years it has shown in this type of violence. Likewise, the current Criminal Code, the code of criminal procedure, the law of marriage with its subsequent amendments and the qualified law on immigration with its subsequent amendments complete the legal framework for the protection of gender violence and domestic violence. It is important to stress, however, that the Ministry responsible for the health and well-being was put into operation in 2006, the team of comprehensive care for women, so that University, which aims to ensure the attention to victims of gender violence in Andorra, as well as to their children.
Although it seems obvious to state that gender violence is not the same that domestic violence, since a point clearly to the genre and the other, to the family as subjects of reference, it must be recognized that the Habitat is conducive to the exercise of its own domain relationships of both types of violence. The family-run habitat becomes a risk, not only to the nature and complexity of the affective and sexual relationship, by its intensity and its privacy, but, above all, because it constitutes a privileged space for the development of traditional gender roles. Gender violence and domestic abuse are not only a problem that affects the private sphere, on the other hand, are manifested as the most brutal symbol of inequality existing in our society.
The prevention of both types of violence is focused by law a comprehensive, multidisciplinary way, starting with the process of socialization and education. The conquest of equality and respect for human dignity and freedom of the people should be priority objectives at all levels socializing. To get a comprehensive prevention, has designed a law in which prevention is the cross axis of the policy in order to promote a change of attitude and eliminate behaviors that allow us to legitimize or incite violence against women and domestic abuse. With this preventive actions have been implemented a mentality from the academic, social and health education and employment, and the same media because, as strategic sectors and with the help of the public powers, can establish a culture that does not allow discrimination linked to gender violence and domestic abuse and promote attitudes in favour of the peaceful resolution of conflicts and respect for gender issues. In addition, he has designed a comprehensive intervention on the victims of these types of violence to avoid and prevent that go back to being victims of bullies. For this reason, the law includes measures of detection of situations of risk, intervention, support and protection. The aim is to achieve a complete recovery of the victim to avoid the revictimització. And in this prevention could not miss the measures aimed at the aggressors, with the aim of changing the patterns of conduct and to avoid new cases of violence. In the trade and it is important to stress that the policy creates the National Commission for the prevention of gender violence and domestic abuse, the main function of which is to ensure compliance with the law, and ensure the effective coordination and collaboration between all the departments of the Administration that have the function directly or indirectly to act in cases of gender violence and domestic mainly to achieve the necessary coordination and communication between the various people involved in these processes.
