Protocol of gender-based and sexual violence (GBSV) – Network of the Gender Equality Committees (GECs) of Greek Universities (GR)

The Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (HFRI) is funding a research project, “Affectscapes of Care: Gender-Based Violence and Resilience during the COVID-19 Pandemic”. The project is funded in the framework of the 4th call (“Interventions”) of HFRI Science & Society to address the economic and social consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be carried out by the Department of Social Anthropology of Panteion University. Several initiatives have been organised to promote the activities of GECs across research institutions, including TARGET, implemented by ELIAMEP, and TARGETED-MPI, implemented by the Athens University of Economics and Business. The Network of GECs of Greek Universities was set up as an informal mechanism to coordinate activities across universities and research centres. It seeks to raise awareness of gender-based violence through training, organisational change and plans to combat such violence at Greek universities.
