GENDER COOPERATION 01 IDENTIFIER: 2015-1-IT03-KA105-005216(EC project)

This project, implemented through an international youth exchange, aim to provide to the participants an opportunity to compare mutual points of views (on issues still in dispute, such as - equal opportunities of adoption for same-sex couples or same-sex marriage) and reflections on gender identity, with the aim to reflect first on identity beyond stereotypes and constraints and, consequently, to increase understanding and mutual cooperation with others gender identities through reflections on gender conflicts and gender based violence, despicable end product of a process that - emphasized - is first and foremost of non-dialogue and non-mutual cooperation. The participants increased their degree of knowledge of gender issues, clarify their skills and their actions taking into account best practices learnt from other participants and/or organizations. The main target group of the activities of the partner organizations start practices of peer-education and support those actions already in place.

Gender Study Program was established in 1997. We have to mention the fact that program “Gender Study” is a brand new aspect in the educational system and was never taught in former Soviet Union. Therefore, all kind of information is interesting for the population. By this reason, we decided to establish a “Gender Study Center” with its own library, where trainings of institute teachers and seminars for women NGO’s will take place.

Gender Studies Program consists of 4 people. All of them are fluent in English, two of them have graduated from the University in United States and have taken Gender Studies classes.
Gender Study Program is working closely with the representatives of Gender and Culture Program from Central European University (Budapest, Hungary), State University of New-Jersey (Rutgers),
Lane Community College (Eugene, Oregon) where representatives of IFMW went through
training and established a Gender Study Center in 1997. Gender Study Center has established
