The priority of this call is to prevent and combat sexual harassment and/or sexual violence against women and girls, in particular in one or more of the following contexts: the workplace, in schools and universities and through new technologies and social media. Projects on sexual harassment or sexual violence in the workplace may focus on specific work sectors.
Projects targeted in particular at vulnerable groups and/or at engaging men in combating sexual harassment and sexual violence are welcome.
This call will fund activities on:
- training and cooperation of relevant professionals (health services, police, the judiciary, social workers, teachers, employers, trade union representatives, university staff etc.) to better prevent and respond to these forms of violence, including through the establishment of formal or informal procedures and support programmes to respond to cases;
- development and practical implementation of modules and/or materials to train and educate children (boys and girls), young people, men and/or women to prevent sexual harassment and/or sexual violence in these contexts by bringing about attitudinal and behavioural changes with regard to gender roles, stereotyping and sexualisation, and to educate about the unacceptability of such violence and raise awareness of victims’ rights. Projects must be transnational and should be elaborated in partnership with and/or be led by key players, such as employers, trade union representatives, education professionals, university staff, students’ unions or clubs. The involvement of national education and/or employment ministries would be particularly welcome. Applicants must document that they have the prior commitment of participating key players.
This call aims to fund practical projects ensuring maximum practical benefits and impacts for the target groups. Mapping of best practices or best practice guides/guidelines and descriptive research studies will not be funded under this call, as a great deal of work has already been carried out in this area.
