Panel Discussion on Global epidemic, regional responses:Violence against women in the European Union and the Caribbean

Gender-based violence affects a third of the globe's women. Cultural and ethical-normative, but also structural socio-economic and political factors continue to maintain and at times, exacerbate domestic violence. A panel of experts will discuss measures taken to reduce or eliminate violence against women in Europe and the Caribbean and compare and discuss policy approaches.
