Istraživanje o rodno zasnovanom nasilju u digitalnom prostoru

ISPRED EKRANA - Istraživanje o rodno zasnovanom nasilju u digitalnom prostoru

Publication

Istraživanje koje je pred vama nastalo je u okviru „Atinine” inicijative „Sa devojkama i za devojke – podrška lokalnim kancelarijama za mlade u podizanju svesti o rodnoj ravnopravnosti” sa ciljem da stvorimo sigurniji fizički i digitalni prostor za sve žene i devojčice. Motiva za osvetljavanje problema rodno zasnovanog nasilja u digitalnom prostoru ima pregršt. Pre svega, brz razvoj informacionih i komunikacionih tehnologija stvorio je nove i olakšao postojeće načine za vršenje nasilja nad ženama i devojčicama, i izložio ih još većem riziku od zlostavljanja, kršeći njihova osnovna prava ne samo na privatnost već i na dostojanstvo, seksualnu i telesnu autonomiju, identitet i integritet.

Exploring violence against older women in the Western Balkans, Moldova and Ukraine

Exploring violence against older women in the Western Balkans, Moldova and Ukraine

Publication

The purpose of this report is to describe experiences of gender-based violence reported by older women (ages 65-74) in the region of Southeast and Eastern Europe. The study on which the report is based captures the most recent experiences of violence (within the past 12 months of the survey interview) against older women as well as their lifetime experiences with intimate partner and non-partner violence, both as adults and as children. Accumulated disadvantages including experiences of violence during a woman’s lifetime strongly influence overall health and wellbeing in older age, particularly when understood in the context of this stage in the life course.

The Summary of the Special Report on Discrimination Against Older Persons

Publication

Discrimination is a complex and socially dangerous phenomenon, unlawful behaviour, unwarranted discrimination or unequal treatment, and/or omission, exclusion, limitation or preferential treatment in relation to individuals or groups or persons close to them on the grounds of any real or presumed personal characteristics. Discrimination may be aimed against different categories of persons or groups of persons, having in mind their personal characteristics, and may occur in all areas of social life. If discrimination is not adequately and timely prevented, it may seriously impact the development of the society as a whole. The right to equality, as a basic human right, enjoys special protection because of the magnitude of the social danger and the importance of the good which is being protected.

Međugeneracijska saradnja neophodna je na svim pomenutim nivoima,
posebno ukoliko uzmemo u obzir krizu do koje je dovela pandemija COVID-19,

dvoje, ili sa više ljudi, zar ne?

UNFPA response to COVID19 pandemics in Serbia

Fact Sheet

The COVID-19 pandemic triggered unprecedented measures by governments around the world to fight the outbreak. Evidence from prior outbreaks shows that crisis could exact a massive toll on women and girls, and that already existing inequalities and discrimination of marginalized groups such as persons with disabilities and those in extreme poverty, can worsen.

UNFPA was on the ground, reaching out to the most vulnerable older people in Serbia and ensuring that women, youth and older people across the country get solid information, support and services they need.
