The Global Femicide Watch Platform is a special project of the United Nations Studies Association (UNSA) Global Network. It provides selected, high quality information - the „must-knows“ - on the issue of femicide: the gender related killings of women and girls. It addresses and better informs policy and decision makers at all levels, actors from the criminal justice system, practitioners, civil society activists, academics, and individuals concerned with this horrible phenomenon. This publication was made possible by the generous financial contribution of the Organisation of the Families of Asia and the Pacific (OFAP) and Karen E. Burke Research Foundation. This publication was made possible by contributions from individuals, non-governmental organisations, and government agencies who have researched femicide and violence against women, gathered data on gender motivated killings and crimes against women, and set up units to investigate and prosecute these murders and aggravated assaults. We express our appreciation to all volunteers, who have remained with the anti-femicide campaign and dedicated their time to the cause. The FEMICIDE team would like to express its gratitude to all the sponsors of the Side Event on “Misogynistic Hate Crimes” at the 28th Session of the CCPCJ, in particular to the Sigmund Freud Privat-Universität Vienna (SFU), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), Soroptimist International, CONGO, the NGO Committee on the Status of Women Vienna (NGO CSW), OFAP and the Permanent Mission of Mexico to the United Nations.
