Participation in Decision Making: Reducing Violence in Schools

"Participation in Decision Making: Reducing violence among youth by improving the public policies for preventing and combating violence in schools at local level” is a PATRIR project, designed in collaboration with the Norwegian Peace Council from Norway and  Nansen Dialogue Centre Serbia from Serbia.Through this project, we aim to empower a multi-sectoral group of active citizens from Cluj-Napoca that, together with the project coordinators and foreign experts, will conduct a comprehensive conflict analysis on the topic of violence in schools, in order to bring improvements to the existing policies that should address it. The multi-sectoral group will be guided to make use of public consultations and dialogue sessions, awareness raising campaigns, create inter-sectoral partnerships and based on an international comparative study on the addressed topic, formulate and put forward 2 policy proposals to the Cluj-Napoca City Hall and Cluj County School Inspectorate that will contribute to the preventing and combating of violence in Cluj-Napoca schools.

During the project, a comparative research on violence in schools in Norway, Serbia and Romania will be conducted. The research will address the type and causes of violence and the policies within the three countries to tackle the violence.

Reports and research results will be published on this page.
