Despite the increased attention to the problem of violence against women, there is still a substantial lack of information and data on the scope and extent of the phenomenon.

This is true also for the European Union, where no comparable data on violence against women exists.

Funded by the European Union, the four-million euro War Crimes Justice Project was carried out by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) in partnership with the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) and OSCE field operations in the region.

UNICRI, in collaboration with the International Criminal Court Office of Public Counsel for the Defence (ICC-OPCD) and with the support of the International Association of Lawyers (Union Internationale des Avocats - UIA), runs on a yearly basis a Seminar on International Criminal Law Defence. The Seminar, which is held in Turin at the UN Campus, is designed for practicing and trainee lawyers interested in the practice of international criminal law whether in national or international courts, and those professionals working with organizations involved in this area.
