Elements of a new strategy

7.1 There would appear to be three elements contributing to the activities of the new strategy.

Firstly, it is essential that worthwhile activities which are not completed in the timescale of the original strategy are carried forward into the new strategy.

Secondly, as suggested by SAFE Ireland, a timeline should be set out in the next strategy “for all policy and legislative changes and actions needed to ensure the full enactment and implementation of the Istanbul Convention”(page 36). The Istanbul Convention is the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence and it came into force in August 2014. Ireland has yet to sign or ratify the Convention.
