Content: In this research work, the network co-ordination between various civil society organizations was explored in Kassel city, Germany, combating domestic violence followed by the rehabilitation of the victims. The collaborative network, called ‚Aktionsbündnis gegen häusliche Gewalt Nordhessen’, works towards this end.
