Mission and objectives

The mission of the European Observatory on Femicide (EOF) is first and foremost the prevention of femicide through data collection, data visibility, research and awareness raising. The EOF recognises its serious duty and obligation, as the first Observatory of its kind in Europe, to lead by setting an example of high standard, innovative and collaborative research initiative.In its mission, the EOF aligns itself with the efforts of the international community to address violence against women and femicide, including in support of monitoring the implementation of the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (2011), and the efforts of the European Union to eradicate violence against women.

Main activities related to gender equality and women's rights

Specific researchers from the EOF Advisory Board are responsible for organising the methodology or data collection under two thematic groups: data collection (mainly quantitative research) and prevention (mainly qualitative research). The EOF operates through the setting up and supporting of Europe-wide country research groups that act as focal points for the collection, joint analysis and dissemination of data. This is coordinated through the work of the two thematic groups.Partnerships and agreements are negotiated with existing organisations working on European/global data collection and comparability, as well as other organisations in the field.
