The PROTASIS Project mentioned by the European Commission in its Website Campaign ‘NON.NO.NEIN.’ for combating violence against women!!

The NON.NO.NEIN. campaign is carried out by the European Commission in an effort to spread the message “Say no! Stop violence against women” and to raise awareness on the issue of violence against women.

Drawing attention to the work done by a variety of stakeholders across the EU and disseminating good practice and relevant EU-funded projects, the European Commission promotes mutual learning, stakeholders’ networking, and exchange of good practices across the EU in an effort to raise the profile of European actions to end violence against women.

The PROTASIS Project has been taken as example by the EC for pursuing such an effort. The main goal of the Project is cited: “to provide the police officers with skills and tools, and to sensitize them to the particular needs of women and children who have experienced violence. This is crucial, as police officers are often the first point of contact for these women”, because “carefully listening to the person who experienced the crime is a crucial first step for solving each case and for increasing reporting of violence against women crimes.”
