On 31 Might 2021, Azerbaijani stakeholders participated within the on-line pilot session on twinning methodology within the area of violence towards girls, home violence and gender equality, primarily based on the requirements of the Council of Europe Conference on stopping and combating violence towards girls and home violence (Istanbul Conference). Twinning is a device to advertise peer-exchanges as a studying technique amongst international locations or sectors. It seeks to assist authorities to enhance their insurance policies and practices.
Azerbaijani stakeholders included representatives of the Ministry of Justice, the State Committee on Household, Girls and Kids Affairs and the Ombuds Workplace. By means of interactive strategies, contributors had been launched to the completely different phases of the processes of twinning and shared their very own experiences on constraints and good practices to implementing twinning initiatives. The pilot session served to check the methodology and in the end will contribute to its finalisation.
