Summary

On 1 and 2 December the Mission organized training on gender equality for school pedagogues in Una Sana Canton (C1) to ensure basic understanding of gender perspectives and help school management better identify and address gender-based stereotyping and bias in daily school life. School pedagogues were reminded of the significance of gender perspectives in legislation and of their practical implementation in education institutions. 

The Mission and the FBiH Gender Centre organized a meeting on 5 December of the Cantonal Co-ordination Body on Prevention and Protection from Domestic Violence in C1 to evaluate current progress and future steps regarding implementation of the Protocol on Co-operation in Cases of Domestic Violence. The meeting gathered key partners and institutions from C1, including ministries, social welfare centres, police, and mental health centres, to discuss methods for improving co-operation and the work of the Co-ordination Body.
