On the November 28th APAV promoted the Conference on Protection Orders in the European Member States. The conference took place in Lisbon, in Hotel Olissipo Oriente, under the objectives of the POEMS project, promoted by APAV.
During the conference the results of the POEMS project were presented and discussed. There were also presentations on the implementation of the European Protection Order, the EPOgender project, and Austrian emergency barring orders.
The POEMS project was sponsored under the Daphne III program. It aimed to make an inventory of protection order legislation and practice in the Member States, to identify best practices and possible gaps, and to evaluate the level of protection offered to victims, also in the light of the European Protection Order. It did so with the help of national (expert) reports, victim interviews and literature study. The ultimate goal was to enhance the protection provided to victims. How can current laws and practices in relation to protection orders be improved?
