24/11/2015 - Joint Statement ahead of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, 25 November 2015
Ahead of the occasion of the International Day for the elimination of violence against women, we join our voices to put an end to violence against women and girls. This violence constitutes a blatant violation of human rights and gender discrimination that blights every country in Europe and worldwide.
Through its European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP), the EU works with its
southern and eastern neighbours to achieve the closest possible
political association and the greatest possible degree of economic
integration. The policy helps the EU to support and foster stability,
security and prosperity.
