The National Centre for Knowledge on Men’s Violence Against Women (NCK) is a knowledge and resource centre based at Uppsala University. NCK has been commissioned by the government to increase the knowledge on men’s violence against women, violence and oppression in the name of honour, and violence in same-sex relationships. The mission further includes developing methods for the treatment and care of women subjected to violence.
