The instruments put in place by the United Nations and Council of Europe, including the latter's 'Istanbul Convention', to which the EU plans to accede, are benchmarks in efforts to combat violence ...

Article 8 TFEU commits the European Union and its Member States to eliminating inequalities and promoting the principle of equality between women and men in all their actions.

Since 2003, when Parliament ...

Debido al alcance de las desigualdades y la discriminación, los problemas que se plantean a los derechos fundamentales y la falta de conciencia por parte de los ciudadanos de los derechos que disfrutan, las instituciones de la Unión han reconocido la importancia que tiene la financiación para la protección de los valores fundamentales de la Unión y los derechos fundamentales, las organizaciones de la sociedad civil y las sociedades abiertas, democráticas e inclusivas.
