Study on international activities in the field of data collection on gender-based violence across the European Union (2013)

Background information

The purpose of the project was to review data collection activities related to gender-based violence against women by EU bodies, international organisations and European-wide civil society organisations as well as assess the planned activities of the organisations addressing this subject. The project was financed by the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE).

The data collection activities were enquired by an e-questionnaire that was sent to 29 organisations. Also five face-to-face interviews were conducted (at the Council of Europe, Eurostat, FRA, UNECE and UNODC). The survey data was supplemented by desk research on various documents regarding the data collection on gender-based violence. The final report consisted of a summary on the policy framework on combating gender-based violence in the European Union, the United Nations and the Council of Europe as well as the descriptions of the current and forthcoming data collection activities by the different organisations.
