Reality Check: When Women’s NGOs Map Policies and Legislation on Violence against Women in Europe February 2007
This EWL mapping report should be seen as a complimentary report, or a shadow report to the
2006 Council of Europe stocktaking study on combating violence against women. The CoE
stocktaking study draws on information provided by the governments of Member States, whereas in
contrast, the EWL report draws on information provided by NGOs and national experts on violence
against women and consists of data from 29 European countries. This EWL report focuses on the experts’ assessments of legislation and the implementation of legislation on different forms of gender violence.
