ACUNS Vienna Liaision Office Femicide Team

 

On the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, ACUNS Vienna organized its second annual symposium, focusing on “Forced Marriage, Violence against Women and the Istanbul Convention.” The symposium brought together high-ranking diplomats, representatives from UNFPA, UN Women, UNICEF, OHCHR, and UNODC, with the President of the Austrian Parliament, Ms. Barbara Prammer, who addressed the meeting. The leading proponents of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women, Ms. Feride Acar, Ambassador Dubravka Simonovic, Ms. Gisela Wurm, Ms. Liri Kopaci-Di Michele and Mr. José Mendes Bota made convincing arguments as to why such a detailed convention was relevant and open to all countries.

Femicide: A Global Issue that Demands Action not only contains the proceedings of the symposium, but also includes recent resolutions, debates and legal instruments from the General Assembly, Security Council, Human Rights Council, the Crime Commission, statements of high-ranking officials as well as country and regional reports by Heinrich Böll Stiftung, and additional experts and academia. Additionally, the most heinous crimes against women and girls are examined: early, child and forced marriage; sexual violence as a tactic of war; women’s exacerbated vulnerability in armed conflict; pregnancies resulting from rape; structural and domestic violence against migrant women. The importance of civil society including women’s organizations to end impunity and to thoroughly investigate and prosecute persons responsible for these serious crimes was explicitly referred to within the publication.
