Mission and objectives

The European Observatory on Femicide (EOF) is a research and advocacy initiative on prevention of gender-related killings of women. The EOF forms a network of country research groups in Europe (as an EU cooperating state).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

The EOF’s work is based in two thematic issues:
creating a Europe-wide data collection system to measure and raise awareness about the extent of femicide, and to provide background information for better intervention and prevention,
conducting Europe-wide femicide reviews to identify gaps in response to violence against women.
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.
