Violence against women and girls exists in all countries and at all levels of society. Each state has a fundamental human rights responsibility to provide protection against this type of violence. This is not a private matter.
ICAR Foundation, which runs the EVA IRFAM project (There is Hidden Violence Affecting Migrant Women) has joined, since 2021, The Network for Preventing and Combating Violence against Women, in the firm condemnation of all forms of violence against girls and women.
The Istanbul Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence calls on the signatory states to implement comprehensive and coordinated policies against this type of violence. The rights of survivors must be in the center of all measures. The work of civil society must be encouraged and supported. It is very important that the authorities formulate and implement specific policies and strategies to protect and help the survivors of gender-based violence.
ICAR Foundation aims to increase awareness of migrant women/young migrants on the ways of action in cases of GBV and the reduction of the tolerance toward GBV acts in the community.
