Preporuka Rec(2002)5 Odbora ministara državama članicama o zaštiti žena od nasilja i memorandum s objašnjenjima
The Recommendations include a concrete definition of FGM, obligations for States including changes in Criminal Code and other legislative changes, organizing public campaigns for awareness raising, and education of representatives of relevant institutions (e.g. doctors). It also includes indicators to measure different forms of violence against women, provides guidelines for monitoring positive developments and additional measures needed to combat FGM (e.g. collection of statistical data, necessary national laws). It is important for Croatia because it is the first document of that kind on FGM. The document was distributed to all relevant institutions, bodies and organisations of civil society by Office for Gender Equality.
