The participants in the workshop included judges and prosecutors, the National Coordinator against Domestic Violence, the Victims Protection and Support Office and the training team of the Academy of Justice.
The aim of this action is to train a pool of trainers, primarily judges and prosecutors, involved in the area of preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence who can further teach their peers in the Academy of Justice. ...
This initiative is developed by the Council of Europe project Reinforcing the Fight Against Violence against Women and Domestic Violence – Phase II in co-operation with the Academy of Justice.
