On 28-29 March, a group of experts from the United Kingdom, Georgia and the Republic of Moldova came together to kick off the development of a new e-learning course on women’s access to justice. The course will promote gender-sensitive justice in the Council of Europe’s Member States, which also include five of the EU’s Eastern Partners: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine.

Course participants such as lawyers, judges, prosecutors and members of civil society will be able to improve their knowledge and skills in relation to relevant United Nations, Council of Europe and European Union standards on women’s human rights and gender equality, relevant case law and established good practices.

The new online course will be developed within the EU and Council of Europe-supported project “Strengthening access to justice for women victims of violence in the Eastern Partnership countries”, which is part of the Partnership for Good Governance, and the Council of Europe’s HELP (Human Rights Education for Legal Professionals) programme.
