Report submitted by Austria pursuant to Article 68, paragraph 1 of the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Baseline Report)

06.10.2016 / Created by (EMWF)

The Istanbul convention marked the point where Europe defined legal norms regarding violence against women and domestic violence. To monitor the implementation of this convention, the ‘’Group of experts on action against violence against women and domestic violence (GREVIO)" was created. This first country report by Austria to the Istanbul Convention was coordinated and prepared by the National Coordination Centre for Violence against Women in the Federal Ministry of Health and Women’s Affairs, with the cooperation of ministries, regional governments, and selected civil society institutions.

This report, together with other information sources, forms the basis for the report by the GREVIO committee of experts, and their conclusions about related measures for implementing the Istanbul Convention, which are then dealt with at the parliamentary level in each member state.
