Abstract: On the issue of combating the insidious and dramatic phenomenon of family and gender violence, Istanbul Convention can be considered the first legally binding instrument in the international context. It introduces a system of rules aimed at the protection of women and minors against all forms of violence, which is complete and attentive also in terms of promoting the culture of equality, stigmatizing any discrimination based on sex. The objectives of the text have been summarized in the "3 P": "Prevention, Protection of victims and Prosecution of Offenders". In each of these three areas (prevention, protection of victims, and prosecution of guilty) the Convention indicates various measures of a specific nature that States are called upon to implement.
