This webinar will be an opportunity to hear from the Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Violence against Women and Domestic Violence (GREVIO) on the relevance of the Istanbul Convention for women and girls with disabilities and how to contribute to its implementation with the goal to end violence against all women and girls. We will also be joined by some organisations of persons with disabilities who monitored the implementation of the Convention and reported on violence of women and girls with disabilities to GREVIO to hear about their experience.

Moderator: Ana Peláez Narváez, Vice-President, European Disability Forum

The speakers will address the following points:

  • The Istanbul Convention and its importance for the disability movement
  • The role of GREVIO as a monitoring mechanism: how to contribute from the civil society to the process
  • Sharing good practices: reporting on women and girls with disabilities

The webinar will provide real-time captioning and international sign. The webinar will be recorded and shared later for those who cannot join.
