Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Girls

16.11.2021 / Created by (EMWF)

The Human Dimension Seminar is an opportunity to discuss the implementation of relevant OSCE commitments and international human rights standards to combat violence against women and girls.

Preventing and combatting violence against women is a longstanding commitment of all OSCE participating States (see OSCE Ministerial Council Decisions No. 15/05; 7/14 and 4/18). Violence against women is a serious violation of  human rights, originating from and resulting in gender inequality. In addition to suffering violence in a domestic setting, women experience violence in the public sphere, preventing their meaningful participation in political and public life, as well as in the security and justice sectors. Women who have difficulty in accessing security and justice services are particularly at risk of violence. This includes women with disabilities, women deprived of their liberty, women from minority backgrounds, such as Roma and Sinti women, migrant and refugee women or women affected by conflict.
