In order to support the Government of Georgia to meet its obligations undertaken on the international, regional and local levels inter alia in terms of eliminating violence against women and girls (EVAWG) and in particular domestic violence and sexual violence, with the generous support by the European Union, alongside with the government and development partners, UN Women is working towards addressing gender inequality in a coherent and comprehensive manner, covering a wide range of issues, including prevention and response to violence against women and girls. Series of awareness-raising interventions and campaigns targeting the public and decision makers at all levels, aimed at changing the attitudes, values and structures that sustain inequality and discrimination and generating demand for the specialized services.
UN Women’s EVAWG programme goal is to support creation of an enabling environment to eliminate violence against women and girls, especially sexual and domestic violence in Georgia. UN Women has been supporting national partners in Georgia to end violence against women and girls and domestic violence (VAWG/DV) since 2010. Throughout the past decade, technical assistance has been provided to the Government of Georgia to align national legislation and policies with the relevant international legal frameworks and standards. To enhance implementation of the laws and policies, UN Women Georgia has supported the establishment of specialized services for survivors of domestic violence, such as the first state-run shelters, crisis centers and hotlines and rehabilitation programmes for perpetrators. Support has been provided in developing key capacities within the relevant service providers and promoting these services – assisting the survivors to reach out for professional assistance. Furthermore, consistent public awareness-raising interventions have been carried out to tackle harmful social norms and stereotypes that condone gender-based violence (GBV), including targeting men and boys with the ultimate goal of behavioral change.
In order to continue addressing gender stereotypes and harmful social norms contributing to gender-based violence, UN Women is seeking to commission an International Consultant to conduct workshops on gender equality and GBV for specific target groups of men from different walks of life. More specifically, the International Consultant will be responsible for developing and delivering training to respond to the following objective:
Increase awareness and sensitivity of selected groups of men towards gender equality and the phenomenon of gender-based violence, to encourage their engagement in the fight against such violence in Georgia through public awareness-raising, community level and other interventions, to become champions of gender equality and ultimately contribute to societal behavioral change. In addition, the International Consultant will support capacity development of professionals from the probation and corrections services engaged in the delivery of perpetrator behavioral correction programmes.
