Vienna Discussion Forum 2019 - Ending violence against women through crime prevention, criminal justice responses and women’s economic empowerment

Vienna Discussion Forum


Despite progress made in women’s participation in politics, the economy, and society at large, significant challenges remain in achieving gender equality. Approaching its 25th anniversary, the principles reaffirmed in the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action are just as relevant today as the day the Declaration was adopted.

To mark the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women (25 November), the Vienna Discussion Forum will contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Beijing+25 review process by focusing on the causes and consequences of gender-based violence against women.
