15 studies were included to assess risk and protective factors associated with family violence in refugee families. A number of risks and protective factors have been determined at the individual, family, society and cultural level.

Refugee families often experience domestic violence upon resettlement. This systematic review aims to identify the risks and protective factors for domestic violence, including domestic violence, sexual abuse, mistreatment, emotional abuse and abandonment. Participants were represented from over fifteen countries of origin, as well as six resettlement countries. Individual risk factors for violence include parental trauma, substance abuse, and history of child abuse. Family-level risk factors include the quality of parent-child interaction, family structure, and acculturation stress. Societal and cultural risk factors include low socioeconomic status and patriarchal belief systems. In contrast, protective factors included positive parental coping mechanisms. The authors conclude that these data suggest that interventions targeting domestic violence should be available to the whole family, not just the victimized person. The restrictions affect the heterogeneity of the study population, the different definitions of domestic violence and the often unclear distinctions between refugees and immigrants identified as study participants.
