Lviv State University of Internal Affairs hosted a webinar on “Detection, Prevention and Combating of Hate Crimes”. Nina PELKONEN and Felix GAUTSCH, the EUAM police-community coaching advisers, spoke about why it’s important for law enforcement to be tolerant and impartial.

“All people believe in certain stereotypes, have certain kinds of prejudices. That’s why it is important for a police officer to understand what tolerance is and thus be able to prevent crimes committed with a biased purpose against, for example, certain ethnic groups,” said Nina PELKONEN. She also noted that she has repeatedly faced prejudice against her profession, as some people believe that women have no place in the police. Felix GAUTSCH added that bullying and other hate crimes always tend to escalate further, and that’s why they should be prevented as soon as possible.

Cadets of Lviv State University of Internal Affairs took part in a webinar on cyberbullying. The training was conducted by Jan DANCO and Felix GAUTSCH, police and community liaison trainers of the Lviv Field Office of the European Union Advisory Mission. The event was attended by cadets of faculties №1, №2 and №3, as well as undergraduates.

EUAM experts spoke about the main elements that characterize cyberbullying. These include the use of electronic means of harassment, intentional harm, recurrence, irresponsibility, anonymity, and so on. “Bullying is a deliberate act. Bullers understand that they are harming others and continue to do so on purpose,” said Felix GAUTSCH.

According to Jan DANCO, online bullying can be particularly traumatic, as abusive comments or images are often available to the general public and spread very quickly. If a child is exposed to cyberbullying, he becomes shy and detached, with a bad mood, can act aggressively towards others, has learning difficulties. “It's important to tell your loved ones right away what's going on. Don’t delete offensive messages, as they may become evidence. First, inform the administration of the site or social network about the case of cyberbullying - and if there is no result, don’t be afraid to contact the police,” said Jan DANCO.

During the online lesson, the cadets shared their own stories, asked the coaches various questions and received comprehensive answers. It is worth noting that the webinar was organized by the Department of actualization of education and practical training of the university.

Representatives of Lviv State University of Internal Affairs took part in the presentation “Guidelines for the integration of gender approaches into the training system for the security and defense sector of Ukraine.”

The presentation was conducted with the participation of the Government Commissioner for Gender Policy, UN Technical Assistance for Women in Ukraine with funding from the Government of Sweden.

LvSUIA was represented by the Rector Roman BLAHUTA, Vice-Rectors Olha BALYNSKA and Marian HURKOVSKY, Rector’s Adviser on Gender Issues Iryna YEVKHUTYCH, scientific & pedagogical staff, heads of departments and representatives of educational departments of the University Institutes.

The event was also attended by the Government Commissioner for Gender Integration Kateryna LEVCHENKO, representatives of the UN Women, rectors of higher education institutions of the security and defense sector of Ukraine, representatives of public authorities and international organizations.

The presentation was opened with a welcoming speech by the Government Commissioner for Gender Policy Kateryna LEVCHENKO, who is a co-author and editor of the Guidelines.

“This document is an example of the institutionalization of gender approaches in the educational process of higher education institutions. It corresponds to the current directions of the state gender policy, which is implemented by the institutions of the security and defense sector of Ukraine, as well as the program of government activities to take into account the gender component”.

“Today, gender policy is derived from the exclusively social sphere and is a matter of strategic development not only of the security and defense sector, but of society as a whole. Such a principle and reality must be reflected, taking into account both practical and scientific-educational activities,” the Government Commissioner said.

At the end of her speech, she wished the audience success and interesting discussions.

LvSUIA Rector Roman BLAHUTA greeted the participants of the online meeting.

“Implementation of the Methodological Recommendations is very significant for education in general and for institutions with specific conditions in particular. This is a bold challenge that demonstrates the need for the security sector to implement approaches to gender parity. This allows to form new educational components in the implementation of educational-professional and educational-scientific programs, to develop issues at the level of research works and to critically comprehend the organization of professional activity”.

“We are actively implementing the Guidelines for the integration of gender approaches into the system of training specialists for the security and defense sector of Ukraine. We have identified the need to create an Information and Counseling Center for Gender Competences within the Legal Clinic and to introduce a number of disciplines, for example, “Criminal Justice and Gender Mainstreaming”, “Qualifications and Fundamentals of Domestic Violence Investigation”, “Gender Psychology”, “Sex Psychology”, Which are taught by our staff, who in turn have been trained and retrained,” - added the head of the university.

The Rector is convinced that constant discussion, possibility of exchanging views is perhaps the best way to implement these recommendations in practice.

A plan to assess the feasibility and feasibility of gender mainstreaming in educational institutions of the security and defense sector of Ukraine and foreign experience of gender mainstreaming in the security and defense sector (f.e., the police) was presented during the presentation.
