Preventing Combating Gender based Violence

Scope:Priorities and activities to be funded

Preventing Combating Gender based Violence and violence against children: For the purposes of this call gender-based violence is defined as violence directed against a person because of that person’s gender or as violence that affects persons of a particular gender disproportionately.

Violence against children is understood to mean “all forms of physical or mental violence, injury or abuse, neglect of negligent treatment, maltreatment or exploitation including sexual abuse” as listed in Article 19(1) of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child ( and in alignment with the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child’s General comment No. 13 (2011) on the right of the child to freedom from all forms of violence (

1. Priorities

1.1 Prevention of gender-based violence (GBV): The focus is on primary prevention, i.e. changing social attitudes and behaviour, in order to end tolerance of all forms of violence. This involves tackling prejudices and gender stereotypes and norms that encourage or condone violence, as well as preventing victimisation through education about healthy relationships and their rights.

(Indicative amount: 2 500 000 EUR)

1.2 Protection and support for victims of gender-based violence and violence against children, including through tackling under-reporting and promoting multi-disciplinary cooperation among relevant professionals (For projects relevant to children, see child rights approach definition: paragraph 59 of General Comment No 13 of the UN Committee on the rights of the child).

This priority aims to contribute to the implementation of:

Directive 2012/29/EU establishing minimum standards on the rights, support and protection of victims of crime;

Directive 2011/99/EU on the European Protection Order; and/or

Regulation 606/2013 on mutual recognition of protection measures in civil matters

(Indicative amount: 3 206 000 EUR)

1.3 The coordination and/or adaptation of support services for sexual and gender-based violence to include refugees and migrants (children, women, LGBTQI persons, young men and boys), in particular to ensure their recovery from such trauma. The aim is not to create new or parallel services but to adapt them in an inclusive manner. This call will not fund operating or running costs, but is intended to build capacity and adapt frameworks to include people in migration, in a practical way, for example where outreach to new reception facilities and structures are needed or where the involvement of cultural mediators/interpreters could help.

(Indicative amount: 3 000 000 EUR)

1.4 Treatment of perpetrators, in order to prevent reoffending.

The aim is to support the development of perpetrator treatment programmes and capacity-building among professionals working in this area, with the aim of preventing reoffending and further protecting victims.

(Indicative amount: 1 000 000 EUR)

1.5 National coordinating frameworks or action plans for violence against children (supporting Member States and other actors). The aim is to support Member States in developing and implementing national coordinating frameworks to eliminate all forms of violence against children (which would cover a number of different areas and issues), in line with the 10 Principles for integrated child protection systems and taking account of the Council of Europe Policy Guidelines on Integrated National Strategies for the Protection of Children from Violence as well as United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child General Comment 13 (2011) on the right of the child to freedom from all forms of violence
