Transposing the Istanbul Convention Preventions into Romanian Legislation. Good Practice Examples in the Implementation of Public Policies in the DV and EO Field

Calin Stanciu

Abstract


The Istanbul Convention represents an illustrative international treaty for human rights with its main purpose of protecting women against all kinds of violence. Through its provisions, the convention contributes to elimination of all forms of discrimination and promotion of equal opportunities between women and men by empowering women. The Istanbul Convention is a mixed act (shared policies), which means that a part of its provisions are of national competence and others are of EU competence. Our objective is to emphasize the measures Romania has taken in the process of harmonizing the national legislation with the Convention provisions, especially by underlining the examples of good practice of this activity, the results of which are recognized at an international level.
