On 26 and 27 August the Presence in Albania facilitated jointly with the OSCE Mission to Serbia a study visit of Albanian State Police representatives to Serbia. The purpose of the visit was to exchange experiences in tackling the phenomenon of domestic violence both at policy and operational level. Discussions were fruitful and both parties showed interest and willingness to enhance bilateral co-operation in this area. A follow up visit is planned to take place in Albania in October 2015, during a campaign organized by the Presence in Albania against domestic violence. This exchange of visits will prepare the ground for a regional activity in 2016 on countering domestic violence that will be facilitated by the Presence in Albania and the Mission to Serbia.
