Legitimate defense in marital relationships in the context of domestic violence

Conference date: December 10, 2020 - 18:30

The presentation intends to answer the following problem: how should responsibility be held in cases where a woman is a victim of domestic violence for several years and at a specific moment in time decides to kill her husband (aggressor) in a cold and cruel way, privileging non-confrontational aggression? Are we dealing with a case of self-defense or qualified homicide?
