A new online event in the series of C-PROC webinars on cyberviolence took place on Thursday, 12 November 2020.
This webinar focused on cyberviolence against women by including presentations and discussions to raise awareness about the Istanbul Convention, the 2019 Recommendation on preventing and combating sexism and other relevant topics that are inherently connected to the use of information and communications technology. Roles and responsibilities of various institutions and actors, including law enforcement, in deterring and handling of these threats were discussed, together with good practices in dealing with various forms of cyberviolence.
The webinar was open for participation to officials and policy makers responsible for cybercrime and cybersecurity, as well as violence against women and domestic violence, criminal justice authorities (judges, prosecutors, law enforcement agencies), non-governmental organisations and researchers/academia with an interest in the subject.
More background information, the list of invited speakers and selected resources can be consulted on the webinar webpage, together with the presentations used by the speakers during the event.
This webinar was organized in the framework of joint European Union and Council of Europe CyberEast project aiming to support cyber resilience of the Eastern Partnership countries, together with Council of Europe's Violence against Women Division and the Gender Equality Division.
