EIGE will hold a seminar “Towards a common approach for the collection of administrative data on gender-based violence in the EU: focus on police and justice”. The event will take place on the 8 December 2014, in Brussels, among key representatives of the EU-28 Member States and EU institutions connected to gender-based violence, especially from police and justice sectors.
It is our pleasure to cordially invite you to attend this event.
On this occasion, the Institute will present the reports from its study “Mapping administrative data sources on gender-based violence against women in the EU: current status and potential for the collection of comparable data”. The study analyses the current status and statistical potential of administrative data sources on gender-based violence identified in EU-Member States (144 sources and 90 statistical products), with a focus on harmonising the collection of comparable data at EU-level.
The results show that police and justice are the sector more advanced in the provision of quality data on gender-based violence in the EU, and that it is feasible to improve data collection nationally for the production of comparable criminal statistics in the field at EU-level. In the framework of the Victim’s Directive, the European Protection Order Directive and the Istanbul Convention, we hope that both Member States and EU institutions will benefit greatly from the conclusions and recommendations of this work.
The working language for the meeting will be English.
