We are glad that a large number of students from the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Political Sciences in Sarajevo attended.

We saw this panel as an exceptional opportunity to create synergy, also, for further joint actions and cooperation between representatives of the legislative authority, on the one hand, and representatives of the academic community and non-governmental organizations, on the other, regarding the topics of violence prevention and additional legal regulation issues of gender-based violence.
