Conference explores online violence against women

FRA facilitated a parallel session during an online conference on the digital dimension of violence against women.

Participants shared good practices related to protection of victims of online violence, prevention, prosecution of the perpetrators, and related policies.

The discussions followed the framework of the first general recommendation of the Council of Europe’s GREVIO group. The November 2021 recommendation focuses on violence against women committed in the digital sphere.

GREVIO monitors the implementation of the Istanbul Convention. The event took place on 10 March.
