Rural development policy deals with achieving goals for rural areas and a wide range of socioeconomicactivities are included within it. This work intends to connect rural developmentpolicies with the occurrence of domestic violence in rural areas. The area of research is theterritory of Tuzla Canton, which is, by definition of OECD (less than 150 habitants/km2),a predominantly rural area. Domestic violence is a wide spread form of violence and adiscrimination against women. Domestic violence includes all forms of violence occurringin the family, expanding the possibilities that perpetrators of violence and victims of violencemay even be persons who do not live in the family but are related to family members, e.g.former partners, relatives, etc.Research results show that victims of domestic violence are in 90% of the cases women (wives,mothers, daughters, sisters, etc.) and that domestic violence is constantly increasing eachfollowing year. All forms of violence over women come stem from a principal discriminationtowards women which results in coerce or use of force. For that reason, violence over womenis a manifestation of a fundamentally unequal position of women and men, and it representsa form of discrimination against women. This paper uses data acquired from Federal Officeof Statistics of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and statistical data from the Ministryof Internal Affairs of Tuzla Canton. On the basis of the gathered data, we employed thedescriptive method, the method of analysis and synthesis, as well as the comparative method of analysis. The hypothesis of this paper was the assumption that “women in rural areas are more frequently victims of domestic violence than women living in urban areas“.
