Buenos Aires, Argentina. The Spotlight Program is the product of an alliance between the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) and seeks to “prevent, address and denounce,” violence against women.  The initiative focuses on “the most extreme expression of violence which is femicide,” and pay special attention to “domestic violence, sexual violence, human and sex trafficking, economic and labor exploitation.” The launch took place in the CCK attended by the President of the Nation, Mauricio Macri.  The Delegation of Euskadi was represented by Delegate Sara Pagola.  Photos are available here.
