Domestic violence: refuge provision in Malaysia

  • Zabidah Putit

Student thesis: Doctoral ThesisDoctor of Philosophy (PhD)


Refuges have become a controversial form of provision for abused women in Malaysia. Questions such as What are the factors that challenge the establishment of refuges in Malaysia? What other options has Malaysia to offer these women? Has Other provision been so effective that Malaysia does not need refuge provision? have yet to be answered. Although the provision of refuge has been much debated, the issues are under-researched as the establishment of the first refuge in Malaysia only took place in 1982.
