I have come to the conclusion that politics are too serious a matter to be left to the politicians
I boast a Bachelor's Degree in Political Sciences and Journalism (Graduated in the Top 10% of my faculty). I also served as a faculty tutor to further hone my communication skills and indeed, expand my knowledge of politics as I was forced to explore politics in its entirety and was presented with differing views from the students. Currently leading the content and coverage plans for a team of nearly fifty editors and reporters. I joined the team in 2016 as a senior producer in the political unit, working with anchors and correspondents on campaign, debate, election and inauguration coverage. Thereafter, I had a brief stint and helped to lead preparation for and coverage of policy plans during American President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office - which steadily saw me moving up the ranks to where I am today.

Ireland's Minister of Justice and Equality Charlie Flanagan said in a statement that the new law"recognizes that the effect of non-violent control in an intimate relationship can be as harmful to victims as physical abuse because it is an abuse of the unique trust associated with an intimate relationship."
The idea seems well intended and worthy of some cautious support. Let's watch Ireland (and countries like Scotland and Wales, who have also jumped on this legal bandwagon) to learn whether such a law really works. Would a law like this be successfully enforced?

This is wonderful news , as not all abuse is physical. But how will the victim be able to prove this?

It makes sense that there would be concerns over how emotional abuse allegations will be proved as, quite literally, there is not the same glaring evidence as there is with physical abuse. However, there are other ways of proving this. tracing digital footprints ( threatening text messages etc) and also trusting the testimony of the victim

Sometimes it's not always just about how the law will be enforced or how the evidence will be proven but that there is a law out there that gives the same gravity to emotional abuse

Exactly! This new provision sends a message that society will no longer tolerate the appalling breach of trust committed by one partner against the other in an intimate context. Furthermore, Although psychological and emotional abuse -- including controlling behavior, isolation, and threats of violence -- can be more difficult to recognize than physical violence, it can be just as damaging.
