New training curriculum for Prosecutors and Judges in combating Violence against Women and Domestic Violence in Kosovo*

On 5 March 2021, the Head of the Council of Europe office in Pristina, Frank Power, and Merita Limani, Senior Project Officer for the project on ‘’Reinforcing the Fight against Violence against Women and Domestic Violence- Phase II’’ met with Enver Fejzullahu, Executive Director of the Academy of Justice to hand over the newly developed curriculum for the training of trainers (ToT) of the Academy in combating violence against women and domestic violence. The ToT was developed jointly by the Council of Europe and the Academy of Justice and in close consultation with a working group composed of key authorities in the sector.

The newly developed curriculum is an important tool to ensure that judges and prosecutors are trained to the highest international standards in this area, and especially in line with the Council of Europe Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention).

The Council of Europe has enjoyed a long-standing co-operation with the Academy of Justice, and will continue to provide support in strengthening the capacities of the Academy in combating violence against women and domestic violence by implementing thematic training of trainees sessions for prosecutors, judges and other legal professionals in the field.
