Final seminar : "Reinforcing the fight against violence against women and domestic violence in Kosovo*"Strasbourg 26 June 2017
On 29 June 2017, the Council of Europe will organise a seminar in Pristina, in the premises of...
The Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence is based on the understanding that violence against women is a form of gender-based violence that is committed against women because they are women. It is the obligation of the state to fully address it in all its forms and to take measures to prevent violence against women, protect its victims and prosecute the perpetrators. Failure to do so would make it the responsibility of the state. The convention leaves no doubt: there can be no real equality between women and men if women experience gender-based violence on a large-scale and state agencies and institutions turn a blind eye.
