The launching of an OSCE project to support criminal justice systems in Eastern Europe in their fight against gender-based violence, developed by the Strategic Police Matters Unit of the OSCE Transnational Threats Department
The launch event will gather representatives of beneficiary countries Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania, the Institute of Police Education at Linnaeus University of Sweden, the OSCE Gender Section and the Office of Democratic Institutions and Human Rights, offering the opportunity to discuss project activities and expected results.
The project, Effective Criminal Justice Strategies and Practices to Combat Gender-based Violence in Eastern Europe, addresses all criminal justice system actors (police, prosecutors and judges) at all levels (senior management, mid-level management and first responders) who are involved in combating gender-based violence in Bulgaria, Hungary and Romania. It also addresses civil society organizations, social workers and academia.
The project is funded by the European Union’s Justice Programme (2014-2020) and Austria.
