The WAVE Data Collection Tool is an innovative online questionnaire that includes the minimum standards for data collection required by the Istanbul Convention.
Data is collected every two years from within the WAVE Network directly from WAVE Country Delegates facilitated by the WAVE Office.
This data is then used to write the WAVE Country Report, which seeks to highlight which European countries, within and outside of the EU, meet the minimum standards of the Istanbul Convention regarding women’s specialist support services (WSS). In particular, it focuses on service provision for national women’s helplines, shelters accessible to women survivors of GBV, women’s centres and specialist services for survivors of sexualised violence from all 46 countries represented.
