The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) is an autonomous body of the European Union, established to contribute to and strengthen the promotion of gender equality, including gender mainstreaming in all EU policies and the resulting national policies, and the fight against discrimination based on sex, as well as to raise EU citizens’ awareness of gender equality.
The seat of the European Institute for Gender Equality is in Vilnius (Lithuania). It was officially launched in June 2010. Administrative data comprises information collected by institutions such as the police, justice system, health and social services and other agencies that come into contact with cases of violence against women. The police and the justice systems are the most advanced in the availability, quality and comparability of administrative data on violence against women.
