The 17th WAVE Conference (10.11.2015)

On November 2, 2015 the 17th Conference of Women against Violence Europe (WAVE) Network took place in The Hague, The Netherlands. Almost 100 participants from 60 WAVE member organizations in 41 European countries, including Women's Rights Center Director S. Vardanyan, as well as several participants from countries outside of Europe, including Rwanda, Israel, the United States and Australia took part in the Conference.The event was opened by WAVE President Rosa Logar, who focused her speech on the collective strength of women's organizations to end violence against women and girls, and emphasized the issue of VAW in war and armed conflicts. The recently appointed UN Special Rapporteur on Violence against Women Dr. Dubravka Šimonović also attended the conference and addressed participants on the 'synergies and implementation of global and regional instruments on violence against women: CEDAW and the Istanbul Convention'. In the afternoon five parallel workshops were held on the issues ranging from WAVE campaigning on the implementation of the Istanbul Convention in Europe to strengthening network communication and cooperation and discussing new perspectives and innovative work in the field of combating violence against women. The workshop session was followed by the first WAVE General Assembly gathered since the formalization of the Network in May 2014. The 17th WAVE Conference ended on the Corinna Seith Award 2015, attributed this year to Fiona Vera Gray and Alison Gregory jointly.
