The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM) held a joint hearing on “Combating Gender based Violence: Cyber Violence” on 30 November 2020.

Mere detaljeret:

The objective of the hearing was to obtain important input from relevant experts for the joint LIBE-FEMM legislative initiative draft report, which will focus on combating cyber violence as an expression of gender based violence, with specific attention to violence against women.
The organisation of such a hearing was of particular relevance in light of the current crisis, which has led to the confinement of millions of individuals in the EU with, as a consequence, an increased use of the Internet, and an increased risk of cyber violence, especially against women and girls. The hearing took place in the UN's 16 days of activism against gender-based violence (November 25 to December 10).
Invited speakers:

  • Catherine DE BOLLE, Executive Director of Europol
  • Clara SOMMIER, Public policy manager, YouTube
  • Ingrid BRODNIG, Journalist, author
  • Cecilia MWENDE MAUNDU, Journalist and specialist in gender digital safety

Efter forretningsordenens artikel 193 kan et udvalg arrangere en eksperthøring, hvis det finder det nødvendigt for sit arbejde med et bestemt emne. To eller flere udvalg kan også holde fælles høringer. De fleste udvalg arrangerer regelmæssige høringer, da det giver dem mulighed for at få oplysninger fra eksperter og drøfte nøglespørgsmål. Denne side indeholder al foreliggende information om udvalgshøringer, inklusive programmer, postere og indlæg fra talere.


Workshopper tilrettelægges af temaafdelingerne og administreres i overensstemmelse med finansforordningen. Der er ikke nødvendigvis offentlig adgang, da workshopper kan afholdes i forbindelse med et udvalgsmøde.

Workshopper giver medlemmerne mulighed for at stille spørgsmål og udveksle synspunkter med eksperter om emner, der vedrører det parlamentariske arbejde, eller om spørgsmål, der har aktuel interesse.
