Helsinki seminar focuses on violence against women

On 11 April, FRA will present the results of its survey on violence against women at a seminar in Helsinki, organised jointly by the Human Rights Centre and the network of governmental focal points on fundamental and human rights in Finland.

In addition to the FRA presentation, the seminar will hear reactions to the results from representatives of civil society and police, as well as the results of research carried out in Finland by the National Research Institute for Legal Policy. The Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs will also contribute to the discussion, providing an overview on the current challenges at the UN level in the area of women's rights.
