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 April 2010, the Government of the Republic of Serbia adopted the National Strategy for Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women in the Family and in Partner Relationships. Adoption of the strategy was preceded by considerable advocacy activity of Autonomous Women's Centre in order of ensuring the quality of this document. Some of the document you can find below in Serbian language.
