Call for proposals to prevent and combat gender-based violence and violence against children

Summary

This call is divided into 5 priorities, with the aim to:

  • Integrate prevention of various forms of gender-based violence against women in different contexts, with a systemic approach (priority 1)
  • Tackle harmful practices against women and girls (priority 2)

  • Support and improve national data collection on violence against children (priority 4)
  • Strengthen responses that prevent and support child victims of violence by reinforcing child protection systems at national and local level (priority 5)

Detailed Call Description

Large-scale and long-term transnational actions to tackle gender-based violence

The objective is to achieve a balanced coverage of actions across different areas of intervention in line with the priorities of the Gender Equality Strategy. To do this, a number of transnational proposals will be selected, each focusing on one of the areas set out below:

  • domestic violence: increasing awareness of and access to support services for (potential) victims, strengthening gender-specific responses to domestic violence (including for witnesses of domestic violence), through capacitybuilding and multi-disciplinary strengthened cooperation and coordination among relevant actors;
  • harmful practices: tackling female genital mutilation and forced sterilisation, early and forced marriage, ‘honour-related violence’ and other harmful practices against women and girls;
  • gender-based cyber violence: tackling gender-based cyber violence, such as incitement to violence, online stalking, non-consensual image sharing, extortion with the use of sexual imagery (‘sextortion’), sexual or gendered online harassment and bullying, grooming, etc;
  • violence and harassment in the world of work: tackling physical and psychological offline and online violence or harassment in work contexts by, in particular, preventing such unwanted behaviours, encouraging the development and implementation of remedies and victim support mechanisms, and the development of relevant tools, guidance, education and training;
  • gender stereotypes: preventing gender-based violence by tackling prejudices and gender stereotypes, in particular those related to masculinities, norms, attitudes and behaviours that encourage, condone or minimise violence, as well as by providing women and men, girls and boys, in all their diversity, with the tools to call out and stand up to violence through empowerment and bystander intervention programmes.
