The Violence Against Children in Elbasan District, Albania

Darina Çoni ( Kacollja)


This maltreatment against children occurs even inside their houses, from their family members and especially from their parents. Home at first glance seems calm and a harmonious place, but it is not that way because home is the place where conflicts happen, and they may even turn into violence. This situation is proved to be true even by the study realized in this district. In order to realize this study, two questionnaires were filled by 1200 persons included of different ages such as 13-23 years old and 18-60 years old. These questionnaires were delivered in these cities: Elbasan, Peqin, Gramsh and Librazhd. The factors that have an influence on the violence against children are the patriarchal mentality, the low economic state, communication, the usage of alcoholic drinks, etc. One of the main reasons of violence in the Elbasan district is Mediterranean patriarchal mentality, which is more widespread in the rural areas.
