Good practice
Each PeerThink partner evaluated a project which can be seen as “good practice” using the following criteria:
  • More than one social category should be touched
  • Interconnection should be visible
  • Decrease of power relations (by deconstruction)
  • Violence prevention should be addressed.

Good practice example Slovenia
Violence Preventive Workshops
(Association against violent communication - DNK)

Association against violent communication (DNK) builds the conceptual background of their violence preventive workshops in primary and secondary schools on the structural definition of violence as something that we learn from the society and is interrelated with power relations existing in the society. Violence is outlined as a consequence of the differences in social power. Women, ethnic minorities, lesbians and gays, bisexuals, transsexuals, and handicapped are clearly identified as social groups with less social power and therefore as social groups that are more exposed and vulnerable for violence.
