The resolution, E/CN.15/2015/L.8 “Taking Action against Gender-related Killing of Women and Girls”, expresses deep concern about the global prevalence of the many different contemporary manifestations of femicide, conflict related sexual violence, the targeted mass kidnapping, rape, and killing of women and girls. It encourages Member States to collect, disaggregate, analyse and report data on gender-related killing of women and girls, according to the international classification of crime for statistical purposes endorsed by the Statistical Commission and, where appropriate, to the extent possible, involve civil society, academia, victims’ representatives and relevant international organizations and provide appropriate training to relevant personnel on technical and ethical aspects of such data collection and analysis.
The resolution also encourages the UNODC to raise awareness regarding gender-related killing of women and girls and to continue conducting and coordinating relevant research on gender-related killing of women and girls.
This informal consultation will discuss ways how NGOs and academia can collaborate with UNODC and Member States in implementing the femicide resolution and stop the barbaric killing of women and girls.
Please note that the October 16th event “What can practically be done to put an end to feticide?” in Conference Room 8 will take place the following day. This consultation will support NGO input for that event.
