Agreement of July 21, 2014, the Sectoral Conference on Equality, by the Protocol approved Bypass between regions to coordinate their networks of shelters for women victims of gender violence and their sons and daughters

Violence against women is a major cause of human rights violation against women, affecting such basic rights as physical integrity, security, freedom and equality, and is likely to reach all women, without prejudice to the greater vulnerability of specific groups.

As proclaims the Explanatory Memorandum of Organic Law 1/2004 of 28 December on Integrated Protection Measures against gender violence, violence against women manifests itself as the most brutal symbol of the inequality in our society. The Spanish Constitution states in Article 15 the right of everyone to life and physical and moral integrity; meanwhile, public authorities, under Article 9.2, are required to take positive action to make these rights real and effective, removing obstacles that prevent or hinder their fulfillment.

The measures implemented to eradicate the social scourge which is violence against women, civil preventive measures, educational, social, welfare, and criminal, have helped to take appropriate action with a comprehensive and multidisciplinary approach policies, although the problem of violence against women is still far from being resolved and treatment requires continuous and sustained response from the government, which on one hand helps to maintain the positive effects of the policies adopted to date, and on the other , address new areas for improvement.

It is therefore necessary to place women at the center of public policies to eradicate gender violence, in order to address their real needs, encourage her to leave the circle of violence and join her in the process recovery, restoring it in full exercise of their rights and helping to build their autonomy, in a full and free life of violence.

As part of a composite State, responsibility for the fight against gender violence and other forms of violence against women are distributed in different territorial and institutional levels, with the majority of competences to the Communities autonomous, whose competent bodies manage the resources of assistance and protection to victims in their respective territories. The goal of efficiency in managing resources and efficiency in finding solutions requires inescapably inter-agency collaboration between the bodies involved.

One of the measures that has contributed most significantly to offer women a way out of the way violence was undoubtedly the adoption of the Law 27/2003, of 31 July, regulating the Protection Order. The protection afforded first assumed that women would not have to leave their homes to escape the violence, facilitating the recovery process to benefit themselves and, where appropriate, their sons and daughters. However, there may be cases where it is still necessary to provide women a space to be installed on a temporary basis, either by the absence of a proper home for reasons of safety of the victim, or by the requirements of the process itself recovery.

Among existing resources to address these needs for protection and assistance of women victims of gender violence and other manifestations of violence against women, are the shelters, which, of different ownership and characteristics, They spread throughout the national territory actually forming a network. The safety and security needs of women sometimes carry convenience to get away from her attacker and begin a process of recovery and empowerment of multidisciplinary type outside the scope of the autonomous community of residence. To do this, it is necessary to advance collaboration between regions for coordination and sharing of their host networks.

This process connects with various initiatives in recent years have been implemented successfully by different Autonomous Communities, in particular the Convention between regions for the Coordination of their networks of shelters Women Victims of Violence Gender, to which were adhering other autonomous regions, as well as the proposals and claims from various forums have been launched to help improve the management of these resources.

On June 17, 2013, the Autonomous Communities and Cities of Ceuta and Melilla and the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, agreed at the Sectoral Conference on Equality to start work that allowed to network reception centers all the Autonomous Communities and Cities of Ceuta and Melilla, through the coordination of these resources for the benefit of victims of gender violence and children in their care, in order to improve their protection and safety, maximizing resources and improving procedures throughout the national territory.
