Feminicide, is the killing of a woman because she is a women. As the most extreme form of violence against women it is the manifestation of Gender inequality and men’s power over women. As the issue has been taken to different frameworks, such as but not limited to the CSW, MDGs, Belem do Para and the Convention of Istanbul, the question is how one can overcome the gaps between them and if there are possible areas of cooperation? And how can one incorporate them into the EU- CELAC dialogue on Gender?
