“Mainstreaming Gender Equality at Universities in the Balkans: Fighting Gender-Based Violence” published in English language

The book “Mainstreaming Gender Equality at Universities in the Balkans: Fighting Gender-Based Violence” by authors Zilka Spahić Šiljak, Jasna Kovačević and Jasmine Husanović was published in English language. This edition was published by the American publishing house Scholars Press.

We remind you that 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 (councils 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. At the end of 2021, as the first activity of the project, thorough qualitative and quantitative research was conducted at all 18 partner universities, by the efforts of a multidisciplinary team of researchers from all four countries in the fields of sociology, gender studies, cultural studies, law, philosophy and religion.
