SANZ-BARBERO, Belén et al. Femicide Across Europe COST Action, a transnational cooperation network for the study of and approach to femicide in Europe. Gac Sanit [online]. 2016, vol.30, n.5, pp.393-396. ISSN 0213-9111.

Femicide or the murder of women because of their gender is a recognised public health problem as well as a serious violation of human rights. Its magnitude worldwide is still unknown, given the methodological difficulties to differentiate these murders from other female homicides. The European Union programme entitled "European Cooperation in Science and Technology" (COST) launched the "Femicide across Europe" COST Action in 2013, establishing an optimal European framework for transnational cooperation among experts addressing great social and public health challenges such as femicide. This field note describes the main objectives, the participating groups of experts and the mid-term results of this experience.

Keywords : Homicide; Violence against women; Europe.
