The Public Policy Exchange arrangerer konferanse om nulltoleranse mot vold 26.september på The Silken Berlaymont Hotel, Brüssel.
According to the Council of Europe, around 12-15% of all women have been in an abusive relationship from the age of 16 and approximately 20-25% of women across the European region suffer physical or sexual violence at some point in their lives. One of the most concerning elements surrounding domestic violence is that existing strategies do not take into account all those affected by the phenomenon; whilst women in heterosexual relationships and their children are considered, intimate partner violence in LGBT, men and youth relationships receive little attention.
This international symposium will analyse the existing challenges in shaping a truly comprehensive and holistic strategy and toolkit for assessing, preventing and protecting against every type of violence and abuse in a domestic environment. Delegates will focus on the role of regional and international organisations in combating domestic violence at all levels and analyse evidence of the repercussions of intimate partner violence. Furthermore, the symposium will discuss the urgent need to collect comprehensive data in order to deal with the challenges posed and provide an invaluable platform to share best practices.
The Symposium will support the exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking topical debate with local and regional practitioners and policymakers at EU level.
