Conference announced: NON.NO.NEIN. Ending Violence Against Women - taking stock and next steps

Vera Jourová, European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, put combating gender-based violence high on the agenda through a ‘year of focused actions’. As that year comes to a close, it is time to look at what has been achieved, learn from good practices at grassroots and national level, and discuss the path ahead. To this end, the European Commission is hosting a high-level conference for representatives from Member States and international organisations, together with civil society actors and activists. The conference will take place on 4 December 2018 in Brussels.

Please note: the event is open to invited participants only. More information will be shared here soon.

Violence against women is happening across the EU. This is a brutal form of discrimination and a violation of women’s fundamental rights. The NON.NO.NEIN. campaign (see #SayNoStopVAW) aims to share information and showcase success stories about the important work that is being done in this field across the EU. More than an awareness-raising campaign, this initiative will support, engage and connect all stakeholders in combatting this problem.
