The EU office of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung will host a panel discussion on the Istanbul Convention on violence against women and domestic violence. 18 Council of Europe member states – including 12 EU members – have not yet ratified the convention, which has been a subject of controversy and widespread misconceptions in a number of countries. Representatives of the Council of Europe, several EU institutions and the European Women’s Lobby will take part in the event.
