The Hague Domestic Violence Project

The Hague Domestic Violence Project was formed to help battered mothers, attorneys, judges, and advocates incorporate child exposure to domestic violence as a defense to prevent the otherwise required return of the child to her or his home country, and to a potentially abusive parent. The project continues its work through the American Bar Association Commission on Domestic & Sexual Violence, offering national training and technical assistance on Hague Convention cases where domestic violence is an issue.
