Background of the project
Grenzenlos is organising international projects and intercultural exchanges for more than 70 years. In the last years, we dedicated our trainings to the topics of civil courage, human rights, peace-work and crisis management. In this training, we want to address the issue of cyberviolence in international volunteering to raise awareness on the topic while also empowering youth workers to be able to address cases of cyberviolence in their work. As international volunteering fosters intercultural understanding and opens dialogue spaces, it is key to address topics like cyberviolence from a professional and reflected perspective.
The cyber space is another site of violations of human’s rights, added to the different forms of violence, prejudices and hate speeches that were directed towards people in the public sphere. Cyberviolence is being a relatively new phenomenon that encompasses a wide variety of crimes since years, it has many forms and can affect people in many ways. However, cyberviolence is often misunderstood and not taken as seriously as it should be.
While cyberviolence may be targeted at any individual or group and may entail a wide range of acts, this seminar particularly focuses on young female volunteers, who are often the victims of cyberviolence.
While there is no data on the incidence of cyberviolence in international volunteering, there is compelling evidence with that young people especially female and vulnerable group are experiencing cyberviolence within the framework of international volunteering. In particular, cyberharassment is often unreported or trivialized.
In this training setting, we want to empower youth workers to open dialogue spaces around cyberviolence in a transformative way while also working with them on how to address cases of cyberviolence from a survivor centred approach.
The training will apply a non-formal learning approach. We want to enable the personal and social development for all participants through different interactive methods. The training consists of a mix of theoretical input, participatory and transformative methods, as well as group work.
