In recent years, Scotland has witnessed a concerning surge in domestic violence, marking it as a prominent issue within the realm of violent crime. Responding to this alarming trend, the Scottish Parliament has undertaken significant initiatives to combat domestic violence, acknowledging that gender inequality and power dynamics are pivotal factors contributing to both the causation and aftermath of such incidents. This article aims to delve into the intricate web of stakeholders involved in addressing domestic violence in Scotland. Through a comprehensive stakeholder analysis, we will categorize the diverse groups involved. Following this, each stakeholder's background will be elucidated using a stakeholder model, shedding light on their roles and positions in decision-making processes. Ultimately, we will explore the interconnected policy network that binds these stakeholders together, unraveling the complex relationships and collaborations that shape the landscape of domestic violence prevention and intervention in Scotland.
