Joint Opinion of Breaking the Silence on Sexual Violence on the necessary legislative amendments imposed by the ratification of the Istanbul Convention

”This joint opinion analyses various aspects and provisions of the Convention which still require transposition into domestic law, without aiming to be an exhaustive or comprehensive analysis of the primary, secondary or tertiary legislative instruments or of the institutional framework which regulates this field.

The purpose of this joint opinion is to highlight those aspects and provisions that require closer attention in light of the information available regarding the extent of violence against women in Romania and of the experience of non-governmental organizations in dealing with victims.”
