The study explores the issue of obstetric violence in European Union Member States  to contribute to the better understanding of this phenomenon and of current responses to the issue. It is undertaken in the context of growing public awareness of and concern about the issue, an established imperative for quality care at childbirth, and an understanding of obstetric violence as a violation of human rights and a form of gender-based violence and institutional violence.
