Resumen

VERGARA, Esteban María. The victimless prosecution of crimes committed in domestic violence contexts. Its current situation in the United States of America and the contribution to the member countries of the Inter-American System of Human Rights. Polít. crim. [online]. 2018, vol.13, n.26, pp.1055-1073. ISSN 0718-3399.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33992018000201055.

The present article attempts to show the difficulties that exist both in the United States of America and in the member countries of the Inter-American System of Human Rights when prosecuting crimes committed in domestic and gender violence contexts without the victim in trial. From there it provides an approximation to the situation of the victims of those offenses, to the rules that govern the subject and to the US Supreme Court’s most influential case law. It also tries to question about the current situation of judicial systems in our region, and finally invites to find solutions to those inconveniences.

Palabras clave : Domestic violence; gender violence; victimless prosecution; confrontation clause; accusatorial system; Inter-American System of Human Rights.
