Feeding Istanbul Convention discussions in Austria

The Agency presented data from its violence against women survey on 8 March International Women’s day to the European Commission’s representation in Austria.

The discussions will feed into the discussion on the ratification and implementation of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence (Istanbul Convention) in the EU and in Austria.

The event introduced the most recent report on Austria from the Convention’s monitoring body. The report contains recommendations on how to ensure the right of women and girls to have a violence free life.
