INSTAT data have shown that the number of unemployed people in Durres region have greatly increased in recent years. Unemployment is closely related to poverty. Poverty is one of the main factors which promote violence and crime within the family. Statistics show that the Durres district is one of the most problematic areas in Albania for violence and crime within the family. One of the reasons is that in recent years, the Durres area is populated with people from rural areas. Thus, this people were displaced from their village due to poor living conditions. Durres has increased number of unemployment rate; and in many cases, they are subject of violence and crime within the family. The aim of this study is to analyze the common link that unemployment and poverty has in violence and crime within the family. This study aims to highlight if there is any link between unemployment and domestic violence in Durres. Through this study, we have been able to achieve valuable recommendations regarding what the government, media, society, and all other bodies should do to reduce unemployment, indirect domestic violence, and crime within the family. Deviant behaviors and measures need to be taken to prevent deviant behavior before its starts. Consequently, if we make more efforts to reduce unemployment and poverty, then we will have a society which is less violated. This will however become beneficial in the long run.
