Sector representatives from Argentina, Colombia, Chile and Europe will share their views on the impact that COVID-19 had on supply markets, the protection and prevention measures that were developed to minimise professional risks, and the policies and protocols adopted for the progressive resumption of activity.

This series of online exchange meetings on the measures that countries are taking in the face of COVID-19 for the care of safety and health at work at the time of economic reactivation contributes to strengthening and improving decision-making. The first topic addressed was that of the construction sector; the second, on urban and suburban public transport; and the third, related to work in private homes.

In this webinar, Oscar Acevedo (Colombia) shares his experiences on how perpetrators in prisons in Colombia and Guatemala recognise their violent acts. In both countries, the fact of recognising or not recognising the damage done is closely linked to different factors and sociocultural representations of machismo, the role of women, among other things. At the same time, the legal frameworks, the work approach of the justice operators and the various methodological interventions on how to work with perpetrators from different perspectives that enable an understanding of gender violence. Oscar will also provide some examples of how programmes should work with perpetrators in the prison context.

The objective of the activity is to carry out a detailed analysis of the existing programmes both in Europe and Latin America in order to build bridges of cooperation with a view to the creation of a bi-regional work network. It is about promoting a joint focus to learn from each other and design better public policies for working with male aggressors to avoid recidivism.

This activity is co-organised by Work With Perpetrators European Network (WWP EN) and the EUROsociAL+ Gender Equality policy area.

In this webinar, Heinrich Geldschläger (Conexus, Spain), will give a brief introduction on the importance of working with male aggressors as part of a coordinated response against gender-based violence and on the Internet Work With Perpetrators European Network (WWP EN) that encourages this work to be carried out safely and effectively in Europe. Next, he will explain the ENGAGE Guide and Training for addressing gender violence in men in non-specific services, developed by European entities in cooperation with the University of Bristol and RESPECT. He will also share some lessons learnt and results of the pilot implementation of the ENGAGE project in France, Italy and Spain, allowing participants to reflect on the approach to violence with men in their own non-specific services and their own referral routes for these men, opening up new possibilities.

The objective of the activity is to disseminate the results of the diagnosis carried out to strengthen Technical Education and Vocational Training in Paraguay, encourage the commitment of the different actors involved in the implementation of an action plan, and promote new actions with the support of international cooperation, product of the consensus and agreements between the Ministry of Education and Sciences and the Ministry of Labour, Employment, and Social Security of Paraguay.

The meeting was organised by the Ministry of Education and Sciences (MEC) of Paraguay and the Ministry of Labour, Employment, and Social Security (MTESS) with the support of the European Union, the Organization of Ibero-American States for Education, Science and Culture (OEI), and the EUROsociAL+ Social Policies area.

This activity is part of a series of webinars, organised by the Central American Integration System (SICA) and the European Union programme EUROsociAL, with the collaboration of the ILO and other UN agencies, dedicated to reflecting intersectorially on the measures to be taken to address the crisis generated by Covid-19, providing a space to share the efforts being made in each country, while offering the opportunity to learn about practices from other countries outside the region and gaining the advice of experts.

Migratory phenomena have been and continue to be a priority on the agenda of the European Union, as well as that of the governments of the Central American region and SICA. Even in the current health emergency, migration is still a salient issue: the expected drop in remittances, the contingents of returned migrants, or the possible new migratory flows that a prolonged economic crisis could cause are three different and complementary aspects of the migration issue in the Covid-19 era discussed in this webinar.

Measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 have drawn attention to the value of paid and unpaid domestic work, mostly carried out by women. The Covid-19 crisis reveals the vulnerability of paid domestic workers, especially with regard to the risks of contagion from the disease, given that their workplace (a home) is indoors and their tasks involve interaction with the members of the home they serve.

This webinar is part of a cycle of four dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and experiences on the measures that are being adopted in the countries of the Southern Cone to preserve health and safety conditions in the gradual return to workplaces in four specific areas: construction, public transport, and work in private homes and in markets.

This activity is co-organised by the Ministry of Labour, Employment, and Social Security of Argentina, the Superintendency of Occupational Risks of Argentina, the Office of the International Labour Organization Southern Cone, the EU-LAC Foundation, and by the area of Social Policies of the European Union programme EUROsociAL+.

In some countries, measures are being taken and sectoral protocols are being adopted for the progressive resumption of activity after the lockdown caused by the coronavirus. From the point of view of safety and health at work, governments have established protection and prevention measures aimed at minimising the occupational risks derived from the gradual and progressive return to work. This webinar focuses on safety and health measures for the care of workers in the sector and care measures for the workforce that, in general, uses public transportation to get to work.

This webinar is part of a cycle of three dedicated to the exchange of knowledge and experiences on the sectoral agreements that are being adopted in the countries of the Southern Cone to preserve health and safety conditions in the gradual return to workplaces in three specific areas: construction, public transport, and work in private homes.

This activity is co-organised by the Ministry of Labour, Employment, and Social Security of Argentina, the Superintendency of Occupational Risks of Argentina, the Office of the International Labour Organization Southern Cone, and by the Social Policies area of the European Union programme EUROsociAL+.

The objective of this webinar is to create a space for dialogue and collaboration networks between Europe and Latin America between the different agents involved in punishing gender-based violence against women and girls, in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic. Especially aimed at staff from the justice administration, the police, and public servants responsible for law enforcement, the application of penalties, and the elimination of gender violence.

How have justice officials adapted to the crisis? What prospects and difficulties are there after the lockdown? Have complaints, orders, or protective measures increased or decreased? How have the femicides that have occurred in social isolation been treated and punished? These are some of the questions that have guided this activity.

This webinar is the second in a cycle of three dedicated to the inter-institutional response to gender-based violence in the context of the health crisis generated by COVID-19 and was organised by the EUROSociAL+ Gender Equality Policy Area.
