The Istanbul Convention will create rights for women irrelevant of where they are from in Europe, residing in any European country - to have the right to be protected from issues of violence against women through prevention, and prosecution, a right to hotlines, shelters medical services, counselling and legal aid. Given the poor current standards for women whether UK nationals or not the Istanbul Convention can only be welcomed in further establishing a woman’s rights across Europe to live their lives free of violence and intimidation.

Thus Apna Haq fully champions the ICchange campaign.
