A handbook for parliamentarians on the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence

Violence against women is a violation of human rights and a form of discrimination against women. The Istanbul Convention aims to prevent violence, protect victims and prosecute perpetrators through a comprehensive set of policies and measures. It aims to contribute to the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women, promote substantive equality between women and men and promote international co-operation with a view to eliminating violence against women and domestic violence.

This handbook aspires to be a practical resource for parliamentarians across the political spectrum and from all political systems, regardless of whether their country has already ratified or is yet to ratify the Istanbul Convention. It aims to strengthen parliamentary knowledge about the convention and to support parliamentarians across Europe to play an active role in promoting its ratification and implementation. It also presents examples5 of how parliamentarians can use their legislative, oversight and other functions to help end violence against women and domestic violence.
