CyberEast: Webinar on Introduction to Cyberviolence

In the framework of the joint European Union and Council of Europe CyberEast project, the Cybercrime Programme Office of the Council of Europe (C-PROC) will host a new webinar, on Introduction to Cyberviolence.

 The event will take place on 18 June 2020, at 12:00 PM CET.

 You can register for the webinar by following this link.

 Background information, related resources and the agenda of the event are available on the dedicated webinar webpage, which will be regularly updated before and after the event.

The panel, moderated by Giorgi JOKHADZE, Project Manager of the CyberEast project, is composed by Betty SHAVE, Council of Europe expert (introducing the T-CY Mapping study on cyberviolence), Katarzyna WOLSKA-WRONA, Expert on gender-based violence, European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) (speaking on Cyber violence against women and girls), Johanna NELLES, Council of Europe, Head of Violence against Women Division, Executive Secretary of the Istanbul Convention monitoring mechanism (GREVIO and Committee of the Parties) (speaking on the Istanbul Convention and Council of Europe Recommendation on Sexism) and Menno ETTEMA, Council of Europe, Programme Manager, Anti-Discrimination Department, No Hate Speech and Cooperation Unit (speaking on the Council of Europe’s work on preventing and combating hate speech and hate crime online).

The purpose of this webinar is to introduce the subject matter of cyberviolence from the perspective of relevant topics that are inherently connected to the use of information and communications technology.

Although not exhaustive in scope and coverage of respective forms of cyberviolence, this webinar will be an introduction to the series of dedicated webinars that will further focus on specific themes and areas discussed during the event.

The webinar is designed to encourage an interactive participation and to facilitate information sharing among participants, discussing relevant experiences, good practices, challenges and opportunities, and is deemed particularly useful for officials from policy makers responsible for cybercrime and cybersecurity, criminal justice authorities (judges, prosecutors, law enforcement agencies), staff from the national CSIRTs, as well as non-governmental organizations and researchers/academia having interest in the subject.

This activity of the CyberEast project is open for participation to other beneficiary countries in different regions covered by the C-PROC.


This webinar is organized in the framework of joint European Union and Council of Europe CyberEast project aiming to support cyber resilience of the Eastern Partnership countries.

Next C-PROC webinars will soon be announced and published under the C-PROC Webinars section.
