This research study explores how the family judiciary manage cases with the cross-examination of vulnerable or intimidated witnesses by alleged perpetrators of abuse, and establishes what, if any, further provisions could be considered to support them in doing so.

The report presents the findings from an in-depth qualitative study based on 21 interviews with family judges and a workshop with representatives from external organisations.
