Minimum quality standards of the shelters and counseling centers for women victims of violence
Guests lecturers were Lepa Mlađenović, a longtime feminist activist with exceptional experience in direct work with women survivors of violence (Belgrade) and Maria Rösslhumer, executive director of WAVE (European Network Against Violence Against Women) and director of the Network of autonomous Austrian women’s shelters. The training was facilitated by Maja Mamula and Maja Vukmanić from the Women’s Room.
The main theme of the training was to establish quality standards and affirm the importance of their implementation in working with women victims of violence, strengthening the interconnection of related organizations that work with women victims of violence and the creation of an informal network of such organizations that adopt minimum standards in their work.
Participants of this training will have the opportunity, in eighteen months, at the follow up training session, to share their experiences and considerations related to the implementation of minimum standards in their work.
