It is more dangerous to be a battered woman in Hungary, than in most other European countries. Meanwhile the legislative process shows a lack of political will, reflecting on the hostile political environment in relation to women's human rights. Some recent international and national developments are likely to result in more victims coming forward and seeking services, and for a need for coordinated advocacy for legislation. The project objectives are effective intervention and prevention regarding violence against women with capacity building related to know-how on supporting victimes and on advocating for human rights-based approach in legislation. Methods: training, mentoring, supervision provided to NGOs, creation and dissemination of publications. Beneficiaries: women affected by violence and their children. Target groups: NGOs providing services to battered women and their children, women's rights advocacy NGOs, NGOs working with young people, Roma women's NGOs.
