Breaking the silence: fight against violence and abuse of women

Rompiendo el silencio: lucha contra la violencia y el abuso hacia las mujeres 

(2018-1-HU01-KA204-047751)

PROJECT DETAILS

The objective of this strategic partnership is, through the exchange of good practices, to fight the alarming situation that the participating countries are facing regarding gender violence, not only in Hungary but throughout Europe.

 

The main objectives are:

1. To transfer the best practices to counteract gender related abuse among women each entity has their unique set of tools and knowledge developed for gender abuse counteracting and targeting the environment of their country; we are looking to create a space for exchanging ways to understand and resolve abuse related conflicts. We seek a deeper understanding of gender violence victims and their situation on all levels, as this knowledge is essential for creating new ways and procedures for supporting them. We also want to share our original system developed for counteracting gender related abuse as we believe it will be beneficial for those interested in the subject.

2. To obtain new tools and methodologies to counteract gender violence and abuse our strategic alliance will acquire new tools for the identification and diagnosis of abuse of power, and also for results dissemination in order to increase the visibility of the project.

3. To increase the level of awareness about gender-based power abuse we want to raise awareness level among adults of gender violence feminine victims such as the Romani women, disabled, LGTBQ, immigrants, refugees, elderly etc.

4. To strengthen alliances at the regional, national and European levels with entities that fight to counteract gender violence and abuse.

The main activities in the Project include:

Project meetings

  • Two transnational meetings will be held in Spain and Romania in which project and dissemination coordinators will participate to start the project officially, as well as make the final evaluation of it.
  • At the end of the course in Spain, an extra meeting will be done for the intermediate evaluation of the project and its dissemination campaign.

* In case of travel from a place different than that where the sending organisation is located and/or travel to a place different than that where the receiving organisation is located which leads to a change of distance band, the actual travel itinerary shall be supported with travel tickets or other invoices specifying the place of departure and the place of arrival.

(ii) Individual support – Proof of attendance of the activity in the form of a declaration signed by the receiving organisation specifying the name of the participant, the purpose of the activity, as well as its start and end date;

In the preparation phase, we agreed solutions for potential problems:

 

– A participant fails to attend meetings, does not sign the commitment to participate, does not perform their tasks on time or violates their obligations – that participant will be given a written notification of his departure from the project; a substitute will be sought as soon as possible.

 

– A participant fails to obtain the European Health Card before the exchange activity begins – the project coordinator of each entity will personally supervise that this occurs on time.

 

– A participant exhibits a bad behavior during his stay abroad (such as lack of respect towards another person or danger to himself or to his companions) – the Project Coordinator of the host entity will notify the sending entity; in addition, the management or contact person of the host organisation may decide to expel the participant from the activity.

 

– A partner stops cooperating or abandons the project – the problem will be notified immediately to the National Agency by email, and if there is no response within a week, you will be notified by phone to get information on how to proceed. The internal agreement between the partners also establishes that if an associated entity leaves the project, it must return used funds.

 

– A participant is late in fulfilling the agreed tasks – the Project Coordinator of said organisation will be asked to give reasons for the delay (the same will be done if the person who is delayed is the contact person). If there is no response within a week, a warning email will be sent, communicating that the fact will be disclosed to the National Agency where the project was presented and in the country to which the participant belongs.

 

– A Project Coordinator delays the payments to the rest of the entities – when not justified, the partners will notify the National Agency where the project was presented in case of delay of more than one month.

 

– A Project Coordinator from one of the entities involved does not send the invoices to the Anthropolisorganisation at the end of theproject – if not justified, the coordinator will delay the last payment to the organisation until the invoices are received.

If a conflict occurs internally (within one organisation), it is to be managed by the Project Coordinator from that organisation. This Project Coordinator will notify the applicant organisation in order to solve it together.

 

Should a conflict of other nature that listed above occur, it will be managed by the collective of Project Coordinators during a meeting structured as follows:

-conflict identification

-possible solutions debate

-solution agreement.

 

If the parties will not reach an agreement by themselves, a vote will be established among the best available options, choosing the one with the most votes. In the case of a tie vote, the vote of the applicant organisationwill be counted twice.

 

All parties will be notified of this conflict resolution measure; this will be reiterated at the initial meeting to help them understand better the procedure in case of conflict; during that meeting, we will establish the number of people who will be able to vote in such cases.

 

Poor, partial or late implementation

 

Poor implementation of the Project may be established by the NA on the basis of:

– The final report submitted by the coordinator;

– The products and outputs produced by the project;

 

A grant reduction based on poor, partial or late implementation may be applied to the total final amount of eligible expenses and may be of:

– 25% if the final report scores at least 40 points and below 50 points;

– 50% if the final report scores at least 25 points and below 40 points;

– 75% if the final report scores below 25 points.

 

Termination of the Contract

The Partner notifies the Coordinator immediately in case of appearance of any situation that may affect the performance of the Contract of Partnership.

The Coordinator may cancel the Contract of Partnership on the condition to preserve all rights for damages through a notification to the Partner.

Other reasons for termination are:

  • If the Coordinator decides that this Contract shall be affected negatively because of any negligence and/or late notification of the Partner,
  • In case of occurrence of the conditions specified under the article of failure to deliver the documents in Article 11 of this Contract or violation of any article of the Contract,
  • In case of occurrence of any of the conditions that shall require termination of the Contract which is set out in Article 2 of the Grant Contract in Annex 1, this contract will be terminated.

 

The objectives of this activity are:
-To obtain a tool to analyze and diagnose situations related to gender violence and abuse;
especially in its early stages of development
-to visit local entities relevant to the preventive diagnosis subject
-to comprehend the best practices carried out by the Agrado Association for violence against
women diagnosis, analysis and counteraction
-to gain deeper knowledge on power abuse suffered by women belonging to vulnerable
groups (ethnic and rural minorities, refugees, elderly…)

During the participatory visit in Italy, the Agrado Association will share a tool for promoting
self-awareness in communication and social relations; the transactional analysis tool has
many practical uses, like conflict and aggressive communication management and abusive
situations identification.
Additionally, Agrado Association will share their best practices for counteracting gender
violence towards women; we will visit relevant organisations and share round table with
other Strategic Partnership members, debating over the current situation in Italy and the
