The Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA) concludes an important contribution to the Chilean Judicial Branch for the characterization of cases of intrafamily violence against women that enter the family justice system in which the Court declares itself incompetent and refers them to the Public Prosecutor’s Office.

JSCA’s research department gathered information on approximately 2,500 family cases from all over Chile to prepare the corresponding study.
