Countering violence with dialogue: Training module for gender-based violence and multi-religious dialogue

Zilka Spahić-Šiljak and Sabiha Husić

Women in Bosnia and Herzegovina are largely excluded from multi-religious dialogue and peace building in state and religious projects. Part of the “Gender-based Violence and Multi-religious Dialogue” project jointly implemented by the TPO Foundation and Medica Zenica with the support of UN Women, this innovative Dialogue Against Violence training package helps practioners develop skills to overcome cultural stereotypes, behaviours and predetermined gender roles by providing clear insights and positive counter-arguments based on how Catholicism, Orthodox Christianity and Islam see women’s rights and define gender policy.
