Chapter Summary

Since 2002, Amnesty International has produced a series of reports seeking to encourage the Spanish government to address the issue of gender-based violence from a human rights perspective and to bring its legislation and policies into line with United Nations standards. The resources available for integrated assistance for victims of gender-based violence continue to be inadequate and unevenly distributed. Amnesty International has proposed in the report Spain: More Rights, but the Obstacles Remain , in 2008, when the term of the present legislature comes to an end, the extent to which the institutional response to gender-based violence by the Spanish government, the governments of the Autonomous Communities, the Fiscalia contra la Violencia sobre la Mujer and the Consejo del Poder Judicial has been successful and has complied with the due diligence standard.
