STOPP - Perpetrator programmes in the Western Balkans

In 2021-2022, Project STOPP supported the implementation of perpetrator programmes in the Western Balkans and Turkey. The project was dedicated to ensuring that Articles 12 and 16 of the Istanbul Convention are fully recognised and implemented in the region in order to protect women and children from domestic violence.

The project was run in partnership with UN Women as part of the regional programme "Implementing Norms, Changing Minds: Ending Violence Against Women in the Western Balkans and Turkey," funded by the European Union.
