Council of Europe: Austria: First report on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence


"Today, the first ever report from Austria is published on the country’s efforts to prevent and combat violence against women and domestic violence.

Austria joins Monaco as one of the first two countries to undergo a basic evaluation of compliance with the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence. The treaty is more commonly known as the Istanbul Convention.

Its entry into force in August 2014, marked the first time that Europe has defined binding legal norms regarding violence against women and domestic violence."
