The United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) Centre for Women, in collaboration with the Center for Social Protection and Rehabilitation in the State of Qatar (AMAN), organised a workshop on “International Standards to Address Violence Against Women” on 15-16 April 2019 in Doha, Qatar.
The workshop brought together 23 participants (13 female and 10 male) from five governmental and non-governmental stakeholders and service providers dealing with survivors of violence against women. It helped increase their awareness of pertinent best practices emanating from international standards and norms, and therefore methods and mechanisms to address violence against women on the national level.
