In this paper, the authors analyze the provisions of the Council of Europe Convention on Preventing and Combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence, which was adopted on May 11, 2011 in Istanbul. Namely, the adoption of this Convention created a completely new legal mechanism for the prevention and suppression of violence against women and domestic violence. It is specifically pointed out that the adoption of such a legal act shows that domestic violence has been recognized as a global international legal and social problem, which has been addressed in a particularly serious and responsible manner. As the Republic of Serbia ratified this Convention, the relevant changes in the positive Serbian criminal legislation are briefly presented. The authors point out that the application of the above-mentioned normative framework for the suppression of domestic violence will show the extent to which it is truly effective.
