The Government is being asked to make domestic violence, in itself, a crime.
The Dáil's Justice Committee will launch findings following a series of hearings and submissions from more than 40 groups and individuals examining domestic and sexual violence in Ireland.
The committe is recommending the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald creates two additional offences of marital assault and domestic assault, to be treated more severely than the existing offence of assault under the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act.
Deputy Marcella Corcoran Kennedy, who is a co-rapporteur on the report, said their other recommendations included an emergency barring order system (where) the victim would not be forced to leave the home.
"It's the perpetrator that should be removed from the family home," she said.
She said gardaí should be able to immediately refer to medical assessments, and that the whole system should be streamlined.
