The Council of Europe implements targeted capacity building and co-operation projects on gender equality and combating violence against women and domestic violence to provide national authorities with information about relevant standards, as well as with the tools and the expertise necessary to comply with them.

These projects contribute towards making gender equality a reality in both the member States and within the organisation.
