In its resolution 2006/29 of 27 July 2006, the Economic and Social Council expressed concern at the high levels of violence against women and girls in many societies and drew attention to the need for ensuring effective and coordinated responses by the criminal justice system. The ECOSOC invited the Institutes comprising the United Nations Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Programme Network (PNI) “to consider providing assistance, upon request, to Member States in the area of crime prevention and criminal justice responses to violence against women and girls, in cooperation with other relevant entities of the United Nations system, and to integrate the elimination of violence against women and girls into their training and technical assistance efforts, including their crime prevention activities”. In this framework and on the occasion of the Seventeenth Session of the United Nations Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, the PNI has organized the workshop entitled “Eliminating Violence Against Women in the Field of Criminal Justice: Forms, Strategies and Tools”. The present publication includes the background papers of the workshop, collected and published by UNICRI in its role of PNI Coordinating Institute.
