Public panel and symposium “Sexual abuse of women, research and case studies”

Coordinator of the Women’s Room Maja Mamula, Ph. D. gave an introductory presentation at the symposium “Sexual abuse of women, research and case studies” held on March 19, 2013 from 13.00 to 15.00 in Zagreb. Public panel was moderated by Lana Petö Kujundžić, Judge of the County Court in Zagreb, and organized by the Association of judges for youth, family judges and experts for children and youth.

This aim of this symposium was to present the research on women’s sexual rights in Croatia, as well as encourage experts and professionals to show greater commitment to women’s rights in the area of accessing the assistance of administrative and judicial bodies. Furthermore, recently introduced Rules of Procedure in the case of sexual violence, which the government adopted on November 29, 2012, should contribute to a more effective fight against illegal conduct.
