DRCC Shadow Report to GREVIO 2022
20 January 2023
DRCC is pleased to submit a shadow report to GREVIO, the independent expert monitoring body for the implementation of the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combatting violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention), as part of Ireland’s review under the Convention.
The purpose of this report is to contribute to the dialogue between the Irish Government and GREVIO, about the first baseline evaluation of the implementation of the Istanbul Convention in Ireland.
DRCC is a member of the Irish Observatory on Violence Against Women which is chaired by the National Women’s Council (NWC) and has also contributed to the shadow report compiled by the Irish Observatory and endorses that report.
This report to GREVIO focuses on issues relating to sexual violence and relates to several articles across different chapters of the Convention.
