Men’s violence against women and domestic violence are serious gender-equality problems and the prevailing political consensus is that it must end. Sweden ratified the Istanbul Convention in 2014, The Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combatting Violence against Women and Domestic Violence, and in 2017, as a part of its commitment, the government adopted a ten-year national strategy to prevent and combat men’s violence against women (SKR 2016/17:10). The national strategy includes efforts to combat domestic violence, violence in LGBTI relationships, honour-related violence and oppression, as well as prostitution and human trafficking for sexual purposes.
National Referral Mechanism is a revised version of the publication that the County Administrative Board of Stockholm launched in 2016.
"Discussions In progress: On honour-related violence and oppression" is the Swedish Gender Equality Agency’s documentation from the international experts’ meeting in 2018, which aims to inspire violence prevention efforts among boys and young men in an honour-related context.
Together with the Swedish Government Offices, the Swedish Gender Equality Agency arranged the fourth International Conference on Men’s Equal Opportunities (ICMEO) on 15-16 May 2018. In order to make the experiences shared during the conference available to others, we assembled the experiences in this publication.
