Challenges of Integration of Gender Equality in the University Community: Against Gender-Based Violence

Editors: Zilka Spahić Šiljak, Jasna Kovačević, Jasmina Husanović

This publication was created as a result of extensive research efforts as part of the five-year UNIversity and Gender Mainstreaming (UNIGEM) project launched in 2021 by the TPO Foundation from Sarajevo with the aim of networking universities from the region, exchanging expertise, equipping higher education by establishing mechanisms for gender equality (council or centers), adopting gender action plans (GAP), enriching curricula and programs in the field of gender equality, and sensitizing teaching staff and students through various types of thematic education and training. All of these are the reasons why a partnership was established with 18 universities (and as of this year 19) from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Serbia and Montenegro, which is a great step forward both for higher education and for regional cooperation, because through networking, exchange of expertise and of experiences is provided by higher education through numerous examples and models of good practice.

The entire project, research and this publication were financially supported by the British Embassy Sarajevo, which recognized and valued our work.
