Prevention Through Awareness Project: media coverage of domestic & gender-based violence

The Project PREVENTION THROUGH AWARENESS ACF/349 is implemented by Intelday Foundation, in partnership with Perceptica Ltd. and M-Brain AS, Norway, with the financial support of EUR 61,500 provided by Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway under the EEA Financial Mechanism.

The topic of Domestic Violence and Gender-Based Violence (DVGBV) is gaining popularity and awareness of the need to make informed decisions leads to a search for more up-to-date and comprehensive information on the topic. The purpose of this project is to research media coverage of DVGBV in Bulgaria and Norway by identifying relevant media sources for information retrieval and analyzing data, so as to enrich data on the topic and demonstrate the role of the media in the topic of DVGBV.

Under the project, a study will be carried out on media coverage of DVGBV, which will enrich the information according to Specific objective 1 of the Thematic Priority № 4: Increasing the contribution of civil society organizations to gender equality and preventing gender-based violence.

A communication campaign will also be undertaken to involve various stakeholders in the analysis of the results and to disseminate the results. This way we will also cover specific objective 3.

The main products (deliverables) of the project will be two analyses and one report, a glossary of terms related to the topic and two communication events to engage stakeholders in the topic of DVGBV.

The main target groups are NGOs working on the topic, victims of gender-based violence and domestic violence, media, institutions, and the general public.
