European Observatory on Femicide (EOF)


 The European Observatory on Femicide (EOF) is a research and advocacy initiative on prevention of gender-related killings of women. From 2018-2019, the EOF had been situated within the University of Malta Faculty for Social Wellbeing Gender Studies Department. In the first two years of its establishment, the EOF’s work was coordinated by Dr Marceline Naudi and supported by an international advisory board of experts in the field of preventing violence against women. The EOF forms a network of country research groups in Europe and Israel (as an EU cooperating state).

The EOF’s coordination rotates among its advisory board members. Starting in the year 2020, the coordination is shared by:

Dr Christiana Kouta at the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT), Cyprus, and

Dr Monika Schröttle at the Institute for Empirical Sociology at the University of Erlangen-Nurnberg (IFES), Germany.

The EOF’s work is based in two thematic issues:

·         creating a Europe-wide data collection system to measure and raise awareness about the extent of femicide, and to provide background information for better intervention and prevention,

·         conducting Europe-wide femicide reviews to identify gaps in response to violence against women

Aims and Objectives

·         Monitor and supply data to policy makers and general public to promote prevention, social change and wellbeing of women.

·         Support the effective implementation of legislation and policy n all levels (international, European, national).

·         Contribute to the advancement of research.

·         Improve data accessibility and quality.

·         Promote comparability across states.

·         Gain understanding of local contexts.

·         Work in solidarity with relevant stakeholders in the field.
