Violence against women and domestic violence are severe problems in the EU. This conference is set to assess the current situation of domestic and intimate partner violence, examine the implementation of the Istanbul Convention in EU member states, and consider means to prevent and stop domestic and intimate partner violence. The first conference day focuses on the perspective of victims, the second day on the perspective of children.

The conference is for invited participants, including EU and member state policymakers as well as European and national organisations.
