Today the "Prevention Through Awareness Project" was launched with a press conference, organised by the Bulgarian entities involved in the implementation - Intelday Foundation and Perceptica - a media analysis agency. They are supported by the Norwegian company M-Brain AS. The project is supported through the first call for strategic projects under the Active Citizens Fund Bulgaria.

The main goals  and activities to be implemented under the project were presented by Ms. Katya Blagoeva, Executive Director of Intelday Foundation. She touched upon the scope of the planned research - domestic and gender based violence as it is seen in the media in Bulgaria and Norway.

Mr. Georgi Auad, Director of the media analysis agency "Perceptica" shared that the project will be implemented for one year untill October 2020. Two analytical works will be done, followed by an official report with recommendations. The report will compare how domestic and generd based violence is covered by the media in Bulgaria and Norway, how are the media talking about violence in terms of used terminology and vocabulary. Entities working in the respective field will be affiliated to the project in the course of implementation. The aim is to ensure sustainability of the results and possible legislative ammendments.

The Norwegian partner M-Brain will provide important data for Norway that will serve as a source for comparison and analysis which are the core of the project.
