Combating violence against women: Moroccan parliamentarians examine the main provisions of the Istanbul Convention

On 5 December 2018, the Equality and Parity thematic group of the House of Representatives of Morocco hosted a meeting to present and discuss the main provisions of the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (also known as the Istanbul Convention), with the support of the South Programme III.

Organised at the request of Moroccan parliamentarians, this meeting provided them with the opportunity to compare the provisions of the Istanbul Convention with those comprised in the law 103.13 on the fight against violence against women, adopted in February 2018 and whose implementation will be monitored by the Parliament. This exchange paved the way for further activities at parliamentary level focusing on other more specific provisions of the Istanbul Convention, with a view to strengthening the Parliament in its prerogatives to monitor governmental action.

 

The South Programme III is a joint programme of the Council of Europe and the European Union, financed by the European Union and the Council of Europe and implemented by the Council of Europe.
