On 4 and 5 December 2023, Dr. Ramunė Jakštienė, Associate Professor at the MRU Academy of Public Security, participated in the ERA seminar “Current Reflections on EU Gender Equality Law” in Trier, Germany, where she presented the ongoing project “2Gether4Victims”.
The aim of the 2Gether4Victims project is to explore the gender-specific provision of support services for victims and to provide an evidence-based analysis of how generic and specialised support services can work together to meet the needs of victims across the EU. The project aims to identify gaps in the way responses to gender-based violence are organised, as well as general and specialised support services’ good practices, and to propose a tailored, comprehensive, victim-centred response to gender-based violence.
The project will develop tools to assess the performance of support organisations and the individual needs of victims. It will also organise capacity building activities for support organisations.
The 2Gether4Victims project started in April 2023 and lasts 36 months. The project brings together 12 partners from 7 EU countries with the aim to improve the provision of support services to victims of gender-based and domestic violence, and to improve the gender-specific assessment of victims’ individual needs. These aspects reflect the novelty, relevance and practical value of the project. The project is partly funded by the EU.
