Prevention and Support for Cyber Gender-Based Violence
The project “Prevention and Support for Cyber Gender Based Violence” will have two main target groups. The first target group includes youth in the 18-29 age group, as younger women are more active on the internet and therefore more exposed to cyber harassment, with that particular age group being the highest risk one (FRA, 2014). It will offer training courses in order for the victims to be able to protect themselves effectively online, strengthen the awareness and capacity of women advocates, educators, and Internet users to identify and report violence facilitated online and by other forms of ICTs, as well as provide tips, tools and resources on how to identify, document and report on-line harassment and other forms of ICT facilitated violence against women and girls. A best practices mapping will also contribute to that goal.
The second target group includes the youth workers and professionals of victim support and social care services, through the creation of a training curriculum. They will be able to utilize the training material and the methodology created through the project in order to recognize, effectively support and guide the victims to legal services if needed.
