The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) is organising the Journalist Thematic Network meeting on two important topics that EIGE is working on: 1) Violence against Women and 2) Resource & Documentation Centre (RDC) that will take place on the 6-7 November 2012 in Nicosia, Cyprus.

The meeting is addressed to journalists, media representatives and communications experts from a number of EU Member States and Croatia that are working with Communication or Gender Equality in many different forms and aspects.

The Cyprus Presidency of the Council of Ministers has its focus on “Violence Against Women”. During the meeting, the main findings within the area will be present. A dialogue on what additional stories to be developed from the report will also commence.

EIGE’s work on the creation of one-stop-shop for gender equality is moving forward in the shape of the Resource & Documentation Centre. EIGE will present the results of a pilot project which collected resources on gender-based violence from six European gender equality information and documentation centres.

Additionally the meeting's agenda offers a unique opportunity to be a part of our network of Media-expert cross the 27 Member States.
