PPDVP ran a Regional Symposium on Culture, Religion and Tradition and their impact of how police deal with domestic and family violence.  The Symposium in Nadi in April 2014 agreed on an Accord, declaring that culture, religion and tradition are never an excuse for abuse.  The Accord is available at PPDVP Nadi Accord

The PPDVP commissioned Baseline Reviews of the four participating countries (Cook Islands, Tonga, Samoa and Kiribati) in 2006 – 2007.  These surveys were undertaken by the Victoria University of Wellington.  The reports serve as a point to work forward from and to help assess the impact of the PPDVP in each country.

An assessment for the 5th participating country, Vanuatu, was completed in 2009.

The four original reviews will be refreshed in 2010, to assist in the evaluation of the impact that the PPDVP and the local police activities have had.
