The Istanbul Convention has been signed by all EU Member States and ratified by 21 of them; the European Union has been engaged in the process of accession since 2017. Although the EU signed the Convention on 13 June 2017, seven member states still have not ratified it: Bulgaria, Czechia, Hungary, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovakia and the UK.
In some countries where the Convention is currently being implemented the issue of the role and responsibility of local governments and their administrations arises, particularly as concerns the monitoring and reporting on violence against women and domestic violence.
This open exchange, co-hosted by CEMR and the City of Frankfurt, seeks to gather experts and practitioners actively involved in the implementation and/or monitoring of the Istanbul Convention, both from the local/regional and national level. The webinar will provide a space for them to share their experiences and identify common challenges faced in monitoring the implementation of the Convention on the ground and possible ways forward.
