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.

At the round table entitled "What kind of law on free legal aid we need", organized by the Autonomous Women's Center, in cooperation with Praxis and a coalition of civil society organizations which believe that the current draft Law is not good, there was a discussion of the key shortcomings of the draft.

Conclusions from the round table are available in Serbian language here.
