The existing studies point to alarming accounts of gender-based violence (GBV) affecting children and youth on the move in the European Union. Trafficking, sexual exploitation and abuse, forced labor are part of the experiences of people on the move. At the same time, the considerable lack of data and professionals’ knowledge and coordination, on the one hand, and the low awareness amongst migrant children and youth themselves, on the other hand, make the issue of GBV difficult to tackle.
To strengthen the statutory response to GBV affecting children and youth on the move in EU countries, in partnership with five organizations (Arsis, DCI Belgium, Fedasil, Kopin Malta and Tdh Romania), Tdh Hungary has recently commenced the implementation of its regional project titled "Building Relationships through Innovative Development of Gender Based Violence Awareness in Europe - BRIDGE". The project is co-funded by the European Union’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (2014-2020).
This two-year project seeks to achieve the following specific objectives:
- To enhance availability of accurate data on GBV against children and youth on the move;
- To develop knowledge and capacities of care professionals to raise awareness, identify and address specific forms of GBV among children and youth on the move;
- To support and promote multi-agency collaboration and learning on GBV against children and youth on the move through regional community of practice;
- To empower children and youth on the move to build positive relationships, awareness and understanding of GBV and support them to report, prevent, mitigate and address it.
Capacity building constitutes one of the key components of the BRIDGE project. The project builds upon the premise that a) in most EU Member States, training on identifying and dealing with victims of GBV is either not provided or is provided non-systematically; and b) there is a need to put in place procedures and personnel, health practitioners and frontline workers, with specialist training on how to prevent, identify and respond to GBV. All four of the project countries identified a need for specialist training for care professionals working with children and youth on the move.
This project proposes to address this unmet need by developing a specialist training for care professionals to identify and provide support to children and youth on the move who are affected by GBV. This is in line with specific objective 2 of the project which has the aim to develop the knowledge and capacities of care professionals to raise awareness, identify and address specific forms of GBV among children and youth on the move.
