Cooperation for the implementation of the Russian Federation National Action Strategy for Women: applying best practices
On 16 March 2022, at its 1428ter meeting, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted Resolution CM/Res(2022)2 on the cessation of the membership of the Russian Federation to the Council of Europe. As of that date the Russian Federation ceased being a Council of Europe member State. Projects implemented by the Council of Europe Programme Office in Moscow are discontinued. The Office will not be maintained.
This project aimed at further building institutional capacities to promote women’s political participation and to prevent and combat violence against women and domestic violence. The project’s outputs were designed to produce durable change in line with international and European human rights standards and best practices. It aimed at empowering those who can be actors of change in the Russian Federation, in favour of gender equality and women’s human rights.
The methodology for delivering results rested on good practices exchanges and peer to peer events. The project outcomes were especially conceived to contribute to the practical implementation of the National Action Strategy, addressing some of its remaining gaps.
The project was implemented by:
Marta BECERRA, Head of Unit
Larissa KIREEVA, Project Manager
together with the Council of Europe Office in Moscow
Yulia UTENKOVA, Senior Project Officer
Tatiana KRUGLIK, Project Assistant
Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation
