STOP-SV: Staff training on prevention of sexual violence
The general objective of the STOP-SV project is to create a dynamic of intertwined actions oriented to:
- explore and appraise the conditions that facilitate and/or promote sexual harassment (SH) and sexual violence (SV) in the night-time environments
- create a system to deconstruct these conditions and foster change
- socialise both the problem and the solutions by engaging the strategic stakeholders (NTE, public administrations and civil society)
The project has been implemented in three pilot sites: the Czech Republic, coordinated by the Centre for Addictology at Charles University; and Portugal and Spain, coordinated by the IREFREA national teams in each country. In addition, the Public Health Institute at Liverpool John Moores University has been responsible for the evaluation of the project outcomes.
In each piloting site, a local multi-sectorial coalition has been established to explore the topic and engage key agents. A training manual module for preventing and managing SH/SV in nightlife environments has been produced, as well as protocols focusing on key principles that should be followed to protect victims, preserve evidence and share intelligence for future prevention. Trainings have been conducted in all pilot sites, and an evaluation has been undertaken to assess the research, components of the programme, training methodology and community coalitions’ performance to appraise changes in prevention in management of the NTE.
