Violence against women - 17.06.2010

Commission launches consultation on combating violence against women (Deadline: 9 July)
The European Commission has launched a consultation on the proposed future EU strategy for combating violence against women, whose outcome will accompany the proposal for a strategy on the matter.

In its consultation paper, the Commission notably recognises the role that local and regional authorities can play in devising and implementing specific actions to combat violence 'Civil society and local and national authorities in member states are better placed to understand the causes and effects of violence against women in their respective countries."

The deadline for submission of views and suggestions has been set for Friday 9 July 2010. The consultation paper is currently only available in English.

Fighting gender-based violence is one of the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR)'s priorities, as mentioned in its Charter for equality of women and men in local life (Article 22).
