REC Action Grant NUMBER 101005467— WEGO3 —REC-RDAP-GBV-AG-2020
Violence against women is widespread in Europe and the scaling up of intimate partner violence (IPV) is alarming. According to the European Agency for Fundamental Rights, almost one in four women (22%) experience physical and/or sexual violence in a relationship with a man. Its causes are often interrelated with poverty, economic dependency and gender discrimination.
The lack of economic independence is one of the main challenges women face when they try to leave their abusive partner. Anti-violence centres across Europe recognize that women often remain in violent relationships because of their financial dependence on the violent partner. This issue is coupled with the fact that women are considerably under-represented in the labour market and in management roles, with the overall female employment rate still being lower than that of men.
Gender-based violence (GBV) is understood as violence directed against a person because of that person's gender: it is not just a quantitative issue, but qualitative too because it is rooted in gender inequalities, violence against women affects women and girls disproportionately.
GBV represents a serious violation of human rights and takes many forms in both the public and private sectors, including physical, sexual, psychological, or economic suffering, threats of violence and the restriction or arbitrary deprivation of freedom. It is a structural problem common to all countries of the world and to all social groups, regardless of culture, religion, wealth, and development.
ActionAid International Italia Onlus (hereinafter ActionAid) works to prevent and fight violence against women in all its forms at national, European, and global levels.
In the last five years ActionAid Italy together with several partners among NGOs, Research Institutes and Anti-violence Centers from across Europe, developed a program to understand and overcome the main obstacles to a life free from violence, focusing on supporting women in their path to self-determination.
WEGO3 is project funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme which started on the 1st of April 2021 and will span until 31st of March 2023. The project is the third edition of a project which started in 2016.
The project is implemented in 4 EU countries namely Bulgaria, Greece, France and Italy. The project coordinator is ActionAid International Italia Onlus (ActionAid Italy), while project partners are Rel.Azioni Positive and IRS Istituto per la Ricerca Sociale in Italy, FACE Fondation Agir Contre l’Exclusion in France, WCK Women Centre of Karditsa in Greece and CSCD Centre for Sustainable Development and Cooperation in Bulgaria.
WEGO 3 aims at increasing the local multi-agency networks’ capacity to foster the IPV survivors’ socio-economic independence through the design and adoption of gender-responsive labour policies.
WeGO 3 builds on the two previous project editions:
WE GO! Women Economic Independence & Growth Opportunity, a project that allowed actors from seven EU countries to exchange know-how and practices on how to support the social and economic empowerment of women who survived violence. The project throve especially on the crucial knowledge and expertise of Anti-Violence Centres (AVCs), which eventually led to the development of ad hoc recommendations.
WE GO! 2 - Building Economic Independence, the Way Out of IPV which was built on the foundations laid by WE GO! 1 aiming to broaden the use & deepen the impact of promising practices to foster the IPV survivors’ economic empowerment, through a better coordination among all relevant stakeholders, including the private sector. The project’s specific objectives were:
WE GO3 – From individual IPVs empowerment to community activation has the following specific objectives:
AVCs, institutions, companies, trade unions, job placement and training centres will co-design and test supporting measures for IPVs in the field of work, including the adaptation of work-life balance measures to IPVs specific needs, the extension of anti-discrimination policies to GBV cases, the introduction of support measures for IPVs searching for a job or employed in precarious jobs.
The external evaluation has the following general objectives:
The evaluation is thought to be implemented in two different phases:
The evaluation methodology should be participatory and inclusive (gender, age, and socio-economic vulnerabilities should be taken into consideration). The evaluation should prevent and avoid secondary victimization. The evaluation should promote ethical data collection practices (safety, informed consent, etc).
The evaluation is expected to cover all countries of implementation (Italy, Greece, Bulgaria and France). The evaluation should assess the project as a whole and covers the implementation period from April 2021 to March 2023.
When assessing behavioural change of target groups who have been involved in several project editions, the evaluator is requested to also enquire past behaviours.
The evaluation will be conducted online or in presence according to the security situation in each country. The evaluator should identify and have experience with adequate online platforms and tools and include them in the proposal.
