Brief Description

In 2018, the Institute for Labour and Family Research (hereinafter referred to as "ILFR") started in the cooperation with the Department of Gender Equality and Equal Opportunities the activities of the national project Prevention and Elimination of Gender Discrimination. The aim of the project is to ensure the systemic institutional provision of gender-based counselling activity, including gender-based violence, and to strengthen the expertise of the ILFR in implementing policies to eliminate gender-based discrimination. A special activity is the implementation of tasks related to the prevention and elimination of gender-based violence, namely the activities of the Coordination-Methodological Center for the Prevention of Violence against Women, including the National Line for Women Experiencing Violence. The project is a prerequisite for the creation, stabilization and maintenance of an integrated protection and support system for victims of gender-based violence and aligning efforts to reduce and prevent it. It focuses on systematizing and linking the different procedures and measures, both legislative and non-legislative, so that they are coordinated and lead to joint efforts by both public administrations and non-public actors to prevent and reduce gender-based violence while support and protect its victims. The budget of the project is 5 mil EUR supported via European Social Fund (operational programme Human Resources) with a contribution of the state budget.
