Panel Discussion on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women

© DR

This event will be organized on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25 November) and will also mark the 25th anniversary of the International Convention on the Rights of the Child (20 November).
The discussion will be an opportunity to launch a Guide on a gendered implementation of the Convention on the Rights of the Child which has been produced by the Association Adéquations with the support of UNESCO. As the event will be held on the 25 November, the discussion will be centred on the parts of this guide, and the articles of the Convention with a focus on issues related to violence, and we will take a gendered approach to the discussion of these articles.

The discussion will be structured into two panels of experts (academics, legal experts, policy makers, civil society) who will provide a brief introduction to the relevant issues, and will then take part in a discussion with the public.

The subjects for the two panels are:

1. From domestic and intimate partner violence to institutional violence: its impacts on the rights of the child
2. A gendered perspective on conflict, violence, refugee protection and the rights of the child
