Don't obstruct ratification of Istanbul Convention!

In a video message to mark International Women’s Day 2018, the Commissioner for Human Rights, Nils Muižnieks, underlines that politicians and opinion makers should promote an honest and well-informed public debate about the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention).

“Combating violence against women and domestic violence must be a priority for us all. The Istanbul Convention is a modern and unique tool designed to protect women’s rights and no excuse should obstruct its ratification and implementation”, he says.
