Findings of the Octopus Conference Workshop on Cyberviolence

Strasbourg, France , 

Key messages on cyberviolence resulting from Octopus Conference 2018:

Cyberviolence comprises a broad range of conduct that most directly affects the dignity and rights of individuals. It is often gender-based and targeting women and girls. While prevention is essential and should be given priority, criminal justice is part of the response. Better training and awareness raising of criminal justice authorities should be provided and use should be made of the tools available under the Budapest, Lanzarote and Istanbul Conventions of the Council of Europe, as well as the Protocol on Xenophobia and Racism to the Budapest Convention, whether or not States are Parties to those instruments.

Workshop on cyberviolence:

The workshop reviewed challenges posed by cyberviolence from a criminal justice perspective and domestic and international responses, including improved cooperation and possible synergies. This included better use of the tools available under the Budapest, Lanzarote and Istanbul Conventions of the Council of Europe, as well as the Protocol on Xenophobia and Racism to the Budapest Convention.
