Roundtable on the role of men and boys in stopping gender-based violence

Men and Women

The PACE will organise a roundtable on 3 March in The Hague, during which parliamentarians will examine the role that men and boys can play in ending violence against women and girls. They will also review the Council of Europe and the Parliamentary Assembly work and standards and identify measures to further involve men and boys in the fight against gender-based violence.

The event, which will be attended by the PACE President, the Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe, and representatives of the Dutch Ministries of Foreign Affairs, and Health Welfare and Sports, will be moderated by Petra Stienen (Netherlands, ALDE), Chairperson of the Dutch delegation to PACE, and PACE rapporteur on this issue.

It is organised by the PACE Interparliamentary Cooperation and Project Support Division in cooperation with Women@PACE, the Parliamentary Network Women Free from Violence and the Dutch Delegation to the PACE.
