Supporting the implementation of rehabilitation programmes for perpetrators of VAW and DV as per Articles 16 & 12 of the Istanbul Convention

European Network for the Work with Perpetrators of Domestic Violence in partnership with UN Women is implementing the project “Supporting the implementation of rehabilitation programmes for perpetrators of violence against women and domestic violence as per Articles 16 and 12 of the Istanbul Convention”. The goal of this project is to increase safety and well-being for women and children by interrupting and preventing violent behaviour. Project will assess the level of responsiveness of the Western Balkans and Turkey to articles 12 and 16 of the Istanbul Convention and address it by focusing on strengthening and supporting perpetrator programs in Albania, Serbia and Kosovo*. Given the importance of promoting positive transformative masculinity practices, a specific focus will be on young men through diverse activities: working with school professionals and directly with young men. Finally, the project will involve relevant stakeholders and policy makers and foster awareness raising in the region. Center for Counseling, Social Services and Research-SIT will support the implementation of activities in Kosovo.

Result 1: Organizations in Kosovo have increased their capacity to provide safe, victim-safety oriented perpetrator programmes.

Result 2: Stakeholders and policy makers recognize relevance of perpetrator programmes in combating VAW and recommendations for full implementation of Articles 16 & 12 of the Istanbul Convention in the region.
