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.

During the project "Dignity, integrity and security for women - a joint action of women's organizations," women's organizations questioned the existing draft of Regulations on minimum standards for the provision of advisory-therapeutic and socio-educational services in social protection. They decided to jointly respond and contribute to the draft of Regulations, which will take into account the knowledge, long expertise and specificity of existing service providers to women who have experienced violence, and especially women from marginalized groups.
