This consultation meeting, organised by the European institute for gender equality (EIGE), will contribute to the development of a more homogenous approach towards risk assessment and management among EU countries.

The aim of the meeting is to review and comment on EIGE’s newly drafted:

  • guidelines for risk assessment
  • recommendations on risk management of intimate partner violence against women for the police

The guidelines and recommendations aim at helping EU countries to meet their legal commitments to the European legal and policy framework and to the Istanbul Convention. Additionally, they will contribute to a robust and coordinated approach to combatting violence against women, particularly intimate partner violence.
