EU Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against women and domestic violence

Perhaps not the catchiest title, but despite reservations from a number of countries including the UK, the committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted a new convention against Violence against women.

It foresees creating a legal framework to prevent violence and to protect victims. It will need ratification by the government which I guess might not happen quickly. We are trying to understand what the Government’s caution is about ratifying convention, and when we have the answer we will let you know!
