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.

Autonomous Women's Center and Women's Research Center from Nis sent their suggestions and recommendations for improving the existing system of legal protection from domestic violence with brief explanations. The proposal is based on the technical discussions held in the framework of project activities of the Autonomous Women's Center, as well as from the research of criminal practices, conducted in cooperation with the Women's Research Centre from Niš.
