High-level conference ‘Ending Violence against Women – Taking Stock and Next Steps’ at the European Commission's Berlaymont building

December 11, 2018

The Family Justice Center framework was recently profiled by Bert Groen and Pascale Franck at the European Commission on Justice and Consumer and Gender Equality in Brussels. This event combined practical lessons learnt from local projects with high-level policy and forward-looking discussions, with the aim of fostering links and collaborations between the different levels of action needed to combat gender-based violence.

During this conference participants had discussions on an equal footing and in an interactive manner how EU institutions, EU Member States, International Organisations, NGOs, private sector and academics can contribute to combatting violence against women. Each session was introduced by short "impulse statements" to trigger the discussion after which the floor was opened to the roundtable participants
