Abstract

The Istanbul Convention focusses exclusively on eliminating all forms of violence against women (VAW), creating a holistic and comprehensive legal framework to prevent VAW, protect survivors of violence and end impunity for perpetrators, yet after eight years the UK is not yet legally bound to the treaty. Lisa Gormley and Christine Chinkin detail the Convention, the UK’s approach, and why it is needed now more than ever as domestic violence levels increase.
