This section is dedicated to international institutions and their related bodies whose work is related to tackling violence against women. While regional organisations will technically fall into the category of ‘international organisation’, the organisations featured here have global membership – bringing together states from around the world.
Most pages relate to the work of the United Nations:
- The United Nations Special Rapporteur on violence against women, its causes and consequences
- The Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women and its monitoring body, the Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women
- The Special Procedures of the United Nations
- The Human Rights Council and Universal Periodic Review
- The core United Nations human rights treaties and their monitoring bodies
Use the links on the right-hand sidebar (or, for mobile users, at the bottom of this page) to learn more about the work of each body to end violence against women – and how civil society can engage with it.
