July 23, 2020 | 5:00 pm Bruselas - 10:00 am Bogotá

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.

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.

The impact of the covid-19 pandemic is having a disproportional effect in areas where housing conditions are precarious, such as in informal and unofficial settlements. The objectives of this webinar were to identify responses to the covid-19 crisis and gather inputs for public action in the precarious settlements of Central America as well as for social housing policy, with the aim being to promote structural change with regard to inequalities and segregation in cities.

This webinar was organised by the Secretariat for Central American Social Integration and the General Secretariat of SICA together with #EUROsociAL+ and had the support of the World Food Program. Its aim was to share experiences of using social protection to respond to the covid-19 emergency and its possible economic impacts on the most vulnerable population.
