The project is being implemented nationwide at all three levels of organisation: local, regional and national.
Directorate-General for Justice and Consumers and the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme.
The total estimated value of the project is € 219,067.52, with the European Commission contributing a maximum of € 175,254.02, or 80 % of the total eligible costs.
The project is ongoing, so no outputs were available at the time of collection of information on practices.
Planned activities include:
Conflict-related sexual violence General Police Administration employees were actively involved in the operational work three times during the project. Assistance and coordination to police officers at the local level was provided, to help them resolve cases involving members of the LGBTI community. We believe that knowing, receiving and respecting vulnerable groups represents the foundation of excellent cooperation. We have received positive feedback from both the police and from organisations and individuals from the LGBTI community.
Information will become available about the project’s successes and its effects on society and what is happening in the organisation once the project has been completed. The true value of the goals set out in this project will be revealed over time, as individuals and organisations work together for the LGBTI community.
The essential conditions needed to help make the practice successful are as follows:
The Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Slovenia and the national police are the lead partners and project coordinators. Legebitra is a project partner and co-beneficiary.
Cooperation was initiated by the conflict-related sexual violence PA, which has been trying, since its inception in 2014, to raise awareness among employees and society as such. As part of the work area ‘Respect for diversity’, conflict-related sexual violence PA employees contacted representatives of Legebitra, who saw the potential for cooperation according to the vision of the conflict-related sexual violence PA.
The project is supervised by European Commission supervisors.
In Slovenia, monitoring of activities is carried out by the task force supervisor.
A project group evaluator has also been appointed. He will complete his work once the project has ended. He has no comments to make on the implementation of the project and activities that have taken place to date.
Before the first training session with coordinators (nine people), a survey was carried out among participants. Another survey and evaluation will take place after the training is completed. An evaluation will also be carried out later among participants of a shorter training course (about 100 participants). No evaluation has been caried out to date.
