The Council of Europe’s Parliamentary Assembly has issued Recommendation 1681, expressing its concern about the rising level of domestic violence against women in Europe, and outlining a plan for a pan-European campaign against domestic violence in 2006. The goals of such a campaign would be three-fold: prevention, victim assistance and increased public information. The recommendation urges Member States to prioritize the issue of domestic violence and suggests ways for government, parliament and civil society to work together on the issue.
