These briefing papers collect and present the findings of the research on intimate teenage violence carried out in the framework of the STIR project – Safeguarding Teenage Intimate Relationships.
The research involved more than 4,000 young people aged 14-17 in the UK, Norway, Cyprus, Italy and Bulgaria.
Intimate Teenage Violence is understood as violence in teenage couples, exercised both online (through sexting, sharing of intimate images, etc.) and offline (physical, psychological, etc.).
Qualitative and quantitative data were analyzed and are the focus of these briefing papers.
MIGS participated at the General Assembly of the newly established END FGM European Network. The GA took place in Brussels 10-11 June 2015. During the GA the members of the END FGM Network had the opportunity to discuss the future of the Network, its work plan for 2015/2016, its membership policy and exchange national experiences in the field of combating female genital mutilation (FGM) in Europe and beyond.
MIGS is happy to announce the publication of the leaflet of the project entitled: Gender Equality Awareness Raising against Intimate Partner Violence - II (GEAR against IPV – II). The GEAR against IPV-II project aims to contribute to primary and secondary prevention of Intimate Partner/Sexual Violence (IPV/SV) among teens.
The expected result is teens empowered in ways promoting zero-tolerance and equipped with ‘protection skills’ that will enable them to avoid being victimized and/or to appropriately and safely react to IPV/SV as victims or bystanders. Moreover, all teens will be equipped with valuable life skills for breaking the cycle of violence and building healthy relationships.
