COMPARING FEMICIDES : TURKEY AND THE EUROPEAN UNION
This paper seeks to compare femicides between the European Union and Turkey along four main lines. Because it would be impossible to mention all the countries of the European Union, France, Germany and Spain will serve as benchmarks for the Union. Firstly, it will be important to focus on the current situation and figures in each of the territories studied. Then, we will compare Turkey and the European Union with regard to the legal recognition of femicide. Afterwards, it will be a question of evaluating the different institutional means put in place to prevent femicide. Finally, the focus will be on the civil organisations involved in the fight against femicide. In this paper, we will try to look at femicides described as ‘‘intimate femicides’’, femicide committed by a current or former husband or boyfriend.
Key words : femicide, gender-based violence, legal recognition, Istanbul Convention, civil society, NGOs
