Advocacy

Initial premise of the Autonomous Women's Center is that policies, in order to fight against violence against women, at the local and national level should be consistent with international standards and good practices in this field. In accordance with the strategic goals, that the Convention of the United Nations and the Council of Europe should be implemented well by the state and that in the process of joining the European Union we must respect the human rights of women, Autonomous Women's Center consistently monitors the implementation of and advocates for a comprehensive, coherent, relevant, specific, efficient and effective national policies against violence against women.

In the following paragraphs we summarize some of the key policy actions of the Program of development of good practices in the field of domestic violence in 2006. Although these are volunteer activities, policy analysis, carefully monitoring of the process and advocacy of adoption and / or amendment of laws, government policies and procedures, we find them particularly important.
