The University of Donja Gorica (UDG), an institutional partner of the UNIGEM project, which the TPO Foundation from Sarajevo is implementing with 18 other institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Croatia and Serbia with the support of the United Kingdom Government with the aim of equipping higher education and establishing mechanisms for gender equality at faculties, organized a series of activities as part of the “16 Days of Activism for Gender Equality” campaign.

It is the first regional research on gender-based violence in academic communities, conducted at 18 partner institutions of the UNIGEM project, presented in 12 chapters of a studious, comprehensive, and analytical publication that is at the same time a practical platform for institutional and normative regulation of gender equality and gender-based violence.
