Abstract: 
The purpose of this publication, the third in the series “Feminicide: A Global Phenomenon”, is to identify the content to be included in this new space for bi-regional dialogue on gender issues with regard to violence against women and the importance of the participation of defenders of women’s rights in this area.
Taken from articles written by prominent defenders of women’s rights, academicians and representatives of civil society, this third publication focuses mainly on legal aspects and legislation. It aims to make headway in the debate on the need for effective legal frameworks, as well as in other related
issues such as statistical records and action protocols, not forgetting the need for comprehensive government polices to eradicate violence against women. These are numerous challenges that require a firm commitment from the states, from the EU and CELAC, just as civil society demands.
he novelty of this third publication is that in addition to articles on Latin American countries such as Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, El Salvador, Argentina, Bolivia and Chile, it also includes articles on European countries like Italy and Spain, highlighting the magnitude and global nature of this
phenomenon. Organisations from both continents have therefore joined forces to request an effective, efficient response to this serious violation of human rights: violence against women and its most extreme manifestation, feminicide or femicide.
