Abstract:

Purpose – This paper seeks to re-examine data from the US National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey (NISVS) to explore the extent of intimate partner violence against male victims. It aims to examine the domestic violence system's response to male victims.

Design/methodology/approach – The paper's approach is to re-examine NISVS data, research on the impact of IPV on male victims and the system's response to it.

Findings – In the last year, males are more often the victim of intimate partner physical violence, psychological aggression and control over sexual/reproductive health.

Social implications – Increased domestic violence education directed at women and services to men should lead to a reduction of DV against women as well as men, since woman aggressors frequently are themselves victimized subsequently.

Originality/value – This paper offers new perspectives on intimate partner violence against men and the system's response to it.
