16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence


On the 25th of November starts the International 16 of Activism against Gender-Based Violence  campaign. The year 2015 marks the 24th year of the campaign, initiated in 1991 and this year the Center of Women's Studies and Policies Foundation will focus again on a topic, which is not so much discussed neither in Bulgaria, nor in Europe - the role of the private business for prevention, protection and reintegration of women suffering gender-based violence outside their workplace.

As a partner in the two years' project CARVE - Companies Against gendeR based ViolEnce , co-financed by the EU Daphne III Program, CWSP made a study in the period February-June 2015 on the level of information, attitudes and practices in companies in Bulgaria for prevention, protection and reintegration of women, victims of violence, happenning outside their workplace. Look at the results.

On the 5-6 November 2015, COFACE, the Confederation of Family Organisations in the EU and the Bulgarian Center of Women's Studies and Policies (CWSP), organized the “Families Beyond Borders” conference in Sofia, Bulgaria. The 2-day event, focused on transnational families, aimed at exploring challenges and consequences of what it means to move to a different country for better economic prospects, but leaving ageing parents and sometimes young children in their countries of origin.

Economic migration is not a new phenomenon but, while studies and policies are focussed on the person who move, little attention is paid to those family members who stay in the country of origin and the impact that the migration process has on the family has a whole. The departure of a family member is always a difficult decision and sometimes a last resort for families living in poverty. The profile of economic migrants in some areas is changing, bringing changes also on roles within the family: more and more women move to become care workers abroad and become the family breadwinners.
