New resource page to combat Sexual and Gender-based violence launched by Council of Europe

CoE launches a webpage with resources on information on national measures taken to prevent and combat Gender based violence

A dedicated resource page on information on measures to combat gender-based and domestic violence has been set up by the Council of Europe. In addition, measures to soothe the impact of the COVID 19 pandemic on gender equality are also included.

This information was compiled after a joint request for information to the Council of Europe Gender Equality Commission and the Committee of the Parties to the Istanbul Convention.


This webpage serves as a platform for inspiration, synergies and exchange of practices, as much as a resource tool for anyone in need of information about what states, but also international organisations, including other bodies of the Council of Europe,  as well as civil society are doing to put the protection of women’s rights at the heart of the fight against the pandemic.
