High-level conference looks at eliminating gender-based violence in Europe

A high-level conference on the elimination of gender-based violence will be held on 27-28 May in Prague, Czech Republic.

The event, ‘A Europe Free from Gender-Based Violence: From Commitment to Action’, has been financed by the Norway Grants and organised by Open Society Fund Prague in cooperation with FRA and the Council of Europe. The purpose of the event is to follow-up on the FRA’s survey on violence against women and to provide a platform for exchange of knowledge and best practices in preventing and combating gender-based violence. The conference will focus on the countries implementing programmes supported by Norway Grants in the fields of domestic and gender-based violence and will target policy makers, experts, high-level state representatives, practitioners, service providers, and researchers. FRA will contribute to the high level conference with a keynote presentation on the results of FRA’s research on violence against women.
