Istanbul Convention: 

On 14 October, the World Future Council, Inter-Parliamentary Union and UN Women awarded the Istanbul Convention with its newly created Vision Award. Presented as part of the World Future Policy Award 2014, this award honours the ground-breaking nature of the Istanbul Convention and the vision it carries for women in Europe and beyond to lead a life free of violence.

This is the second award presented to the Istanbul Convention which demonstrates recognition of the fact that it is currently the most comprehensive international instrument on violence against women.
