WAVE Country Report 2021

The WAVE Country Report 2021 has been published!

The Country Report is the main publication of the WAVE Network, and it is published every two years. It represents an important tool for highlighting the situation of women’s specialist support services in 46 European countries.

The Country Report 2021 focuses on four key areas of service provision, namely: women’s helplines, shelters accessible to women, women’s centres, and specialist services for survivors of sexualised violence. The report seeks to highlight which European countries, within and outside the EU, meet the minimum standards of the Istanbul Convention in terms of service provision. Available data on femicide is also presented, and the report includes a chapter on the significant impact of COVID-19 on women’s specialist support services. Moreover, the report provides individual country profiles for the 46 countries included in the research.
