DV LAW ADVOCACY

The importance of adopting a DV law for ensuring human rights protection in Armenia was the topic of a conference organized by the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Women. WSC lawyer Nona Galstyan stressed the vital role that adoption of DV legislation plays for Armenia. “Whether this specific draft law will be adopted or any other law will be written doesn’t matter. What matters is that the essential provisions we have been advocating for are included into the law.” It’s also important to mention that DV victims were present at the conference, one of whom raised her voice and told everyone that she has been battered by her husband every single day and is not protected by the police or other authorities.
