Gender Symposium: COMBATING FEMICIDE

Combating violence against women– bringing security home

Femicide is globally recognized as one of the gravest violations of human rights and gender-based killings as the most serious form of gender-based violence. On 17 December 2015 the United Nations General Assembly adopted Resolution A/RES/70/176 on taking action against gender-related killing of women and girls, which encourages Member States to promote integrated and comprehensive strategies to prevent all forms of violence against women and girls, including gender-related killing of women and girls.

On 22nd July 2016, the German Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Chairmanship and the Gender Section organized a conference on Combating Violence Against Women in the OSCE Region. One of the key recommendations emerging from the meeting was related to the importance of Data, research and documentation. The conference participants agreed this issue needs a systematic approach and improvement.

The UN Special Rapporteur on VAW has promoted the establishment of Femicide Watches at the national level. A systematic collection and documentation of data is necessary, as this also allows analysis of victims’ profiles and perpetrators profiles, to address root causes.

In order to raise awareness within and outside the OSCE region on the issue of Femicide and the potential of Femicide watches, a symposium will be organized on 25th of November, the International Day to Eliminate Violence Against Women and the first day of the yearly 16 Days of Activism to combat gender-based violence.

Symposium focus:

The half-day symposium in Vienna, Austria on 25th November 2016, will bring together stakeholders from government (policy makers and law enforcement agencies), international organizations, OSCE institutions and field operations, academics as well as civil society, including women’s organizations, to identify ways forward and guidance needed for governments to prevent Femicide.

Key objectives:

  • Discuss progress made and achievements reached in the area of Femicide in the OSCE region.
  • Identify areas of future work for national governments to improve and systematize data collection and analysis on Femicide, with a view to improving prevention and response mechanisms.

Symposium format:

The symposium will consist of plenary sessions in a panel format where progress, good practices, gaps and new approaches will be shared by the panel members, followed by an open discussion. Registration to the Symposium is open to government representatives, civil society members, academia as well as programmatic experts from international organizations.

Translation:

Simultaneous translation for Russian and English will be provided during the symposium.
