This chapter links the themes from the previous chapters to current issues in the UK. It begins by briefly outlining some of the key developments in English policies and practices with regard to the tackling of men’s violence in families. The chapter then reflects on the lessons and conclusions that can be drawn from the practices of the UK’s Nordic counterparts.

This chapter draws on research co-directed by the author between 1990 and 1996 in England and Denmark examining arrangements for children’s contact with parents after separation or divorce, in circumstances of domestic violence, and a smaller follow-up study. It examines in particular some of the shifts and changes apparent since the mid-1990s with regard to custody and contact in Denmark. To understand these shifts, it is important to consider changes in legislation as well as the apparent impacts on professional practice in recent years. It should be noted that in Denmark the law is considered a vehicle of social reform and social engineering to an extent that is not usual in the UK, where legal change usually reflects rather than pre-empts change in social practices.
