Individual responses to the 2012 Questionnaire on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Civil Protection Orders
(Prel. Doc. No 4 A of November 2012)


The Council of Europe Secretariat (Directorate General of Human Rights and Rule of Law, Gender Equality and Violence against Women Division) submitted information to the Permanent Bureau in relation to a potential new global instrument on the recognition and enforcement of foreign civil protection orders, responding to an informal survey principally of non-governmental organisations and institutes. It should be noted that all information submitted was based on the expertise of the Council of Europe Secretariat, and does not represent the views of the Member States of the Council of Europe. (A copy of a short questionnaire distributed to non-governmental actors is available on the website of the Hague Conference at < > under "Work in Progress" then "General Affairs" and "Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Civil Protection Orders: Questionnaire for Non-Governmental Organisations, Info.
