The Istanbul Convention: A tool to tackle violence against women and girls

02-12-2019

The Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention) is the first instrument in Europe to set legally binding standards specifically to prevent gender-based violence, protect victims of violence and punish perpetrators. Following the EU's signing of the Convention in June 2017, the European Parliament's consent is required for the EU's accession to the Convention. Pending Council's formal request for that consent, Parliament ...

The Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention) is the first instrument in Europe to set legally binding standards specifically to prevent gender-based violence, protect victims of violence and punish perpetrators. Following the EU's signing of the Convention in June 2017, the European Parliament's consent is required for the EU's accession to the Convention. Pending Council's formal request for that consent, Parliament adopted an interim resolution in September 2017, and subsequently reviewed progress towards EU accession, in April and November 2019.

Gewalt gegen Frauen in der EU: Aktueller Stand

22-11-2019

Gewalt gegen Frauen stellt eine Verletzung der Menschenrechte und eine Form der Diskriminierung aufgrund des Geschlechts dar. Sie wurzelt in Ungleichheiten zwischen Frauen und Männern und nimmt vielerlei Formen an. Die Schätzungen zum Ausmaß des Problems sind alarmierend. Diese Gewalt hat erhebliche Auswirkungen auf die Opfer und ist mit hohen gesellschaftlichen Kosten verbunden. Die von den Vereinten Nationen und dem Europarat eingeführten Instrumente, einschließlich der Istanbul-Konvention des ...

Gewalt gegen Frauen stellt eine Verletzung der Menschenrechte und eine Form der Diskriminierung aufgrund des Geschlechts dar. Sie wurzelt in Ungleichheiten zwischen Frauen und Männern und nimmt vielerlei Formen an. Die Schätzungen zum Ausmaß des Problems sind alarmierend. Diese Gewalt hat erhebliche Auswirkungen auf die Opfer und ist mit hohen gesellschaftlichen Kosten verbunden. Die von den Vereinten Nationen und dem Europarat eingeführten Instrumente, einschließlich der Istanbul-Konvention des Letzteren, der die EU beizutreten beabsichtigt, sind bedeutende Bezugspunkte bei den Bemühungen, die Gewalt gegen Frauen zu bekämpfen. Die EU bekämpft dieses Problem auf vielfältige Weise, verfügt jedoch über kein verbindliches Instrument, das eigens zum Schutz von Frauen gegen Gewalt konzipiert wurde. Obwohl es Gemeinsamkeiten zwischen den nationalen Strategien zur Bekämpfung von Gewalt gegen Frauen gibt, haben die Mitgliedstaaten unterschiedliche Herangehensweisen an das Problem gewählt. Die Bemühungen des Europäischen Parlaments konzentrieren sich darauf, die EU-Politik in diesem Bereich zu stärken. Das Europäische Parlament hat mehrfach eine Strategie der Europäischen Union zur Bekämpfung der Gewalt gegen Frauen gefordert, einschließlich eines rechtsverbindlichen Instruments. Die Interessengruppen haben eine Reihe von Bedenken geäußert, etwa hinsichtlich der Auswirkungen der Wirtschaftskrise und der Rückschläge bei der Gleichstellung der Geschlechter auf die Finanzierung der Prävention und Unterstützung von Opfern. Sie haben hervorgehoben, dass es eines umfassenden politischen Rahmens der EU zur Beseitigung der Gewalt gegen Frauen bedarf. Sie haben auch eigene neue Initiativen ins Leben gerufen. Dies ist eine weitere Aktualisierung eines früheren Briefings von Anna Dimitrova-Stull vom Februar 2014. Die jüngste frühere Fassung stammt vom September 2019.

Louise Weiss - Campaigner for liberty

20-11-2019

Throughout her career in the public eye, Louise Weiss was both a writer and an activist. She was among those who promoted the European ideal on the basis of their experiences during the First World War. Like many other people who were similarly influenced, Louise Weiss was a product of the borderlands, her family having come from the part of eastern France that had been annexed by Germany in 1871.

Throughout her career in the public eye, Louise Weiss was both a writer and an activist. She was among those who promoted the European ideal on the basis of their experiences during the First World War. Like many other people who were similarly influenced, Louise Weiss was a product of the borderlands, her family having come from the part of eastern France that had been annexed by Germany in 1871. Louise Weiss devoted her life to various campaigns, which can be seen as having been mutually reinforcing: the battle for women's rights, the battles for Europe and for freedom for the nations of central Europe, and the intellectual struggle to analyse and eradicate the roots of war. At different times in her life, she was a journalist, a politician, a committed intellectual and a maker of documentary films in many parts of the world. Her commitment to Europe remained the underlying theme of everything she did, and in 1979 she successfully stood as a candidate in the first elections to the European Parliament by direct universal suffrage. As the oldest member of the assembly, she gave the inaugural speech, before handing over the presidency to another woman who had campaigned for Europe, Simone Veil. Today, the building in which the European Parliament has its plenary chamber in Strasbourg is named after Louise Weiss.
