In the period from 26th to 27th May 2022 The Center for Roma Initiatives in cooperation with the Center for Investigative Journalism of Montenegro (CIN Montenegro) organized a two-day accredited training entitled: “Basic training of professionals, professional associates and members of multidisciplinary teams for prevention and suppression of child arranged marriages”.
The mentioned training was attended by 20 representatives of relevant institutions from Podgorica, Nikšić and Cetinje (representatives of the Security Centers, Centers for Social Work, Basic and Supreme State Prosecutor’s Office, Office for Human and Minority Rights and Prevention of Addiction Diseases). Through theoretical and practical work the participants had the opportunity to get acquainted with the concept and characteristics of child arranged marriage, national legislative frameworks to combat this phenomenon as well as the actions of relevant institutions.
Based on the test outputs, all participants have met the conditions for obtaining a certificate issued by the Institute for Social and Child Protection of Montenegro.
The activity was implemented within the project: “RE community: health, education, employment and social rights” funded by the European Union and co-financed by the Ministry of Public Administration, Digital Society and Media.
