From the summary: "Section 549C of the Fiscal Year 2021 National Defense Authorization Act directs the Department of Defense (DoD) to provide an independent analysis of and recommendations on issues related to domestic abuse in the armed forces (Public Law 116-283, 2021). This report is one part of a larger effort to respond to this request and provides results from work done by the RAND Corporation’s National Defense Research Institute to answer the following research questions: 1. What strategies can help prevent domestic abuse among service members and their spouses or partners before it occurs? 2. What strategies can help the military with outreach and communication to reach individuals who might have risk factors for domestic abuse? 3. What strategies can help the military measure or evaluate how well its domestic abuse outreach, communication, and prevention activities are working?"
