Lviv State University of Internal Affairs launched series of scientific and practical events dedicated to topical aspects of adherence to the principles of gender equality. Discussions on this extremely important topic began during a round table held today at the university. First event was held remotely - participants communicated via online platform ZOOM. The discussion concerned the legal basis of gender equality in the Security and Defense Sector of Ukraine.

International experts, scholars, practitioners and representatives of public organizations spoke about the developments in this area and shared their views on ways to overcome gender stereotypes in society.

Rector of Lviv State University of Internal Affairs Roman Blahuta addressed the participants of the round table with a welcoming speech. “The gender approach in the education of higher education applicants should be focused on the formation and establishment of the practice of equal, gender-independent opportunities for self-realization of young people in various fields and spheres. At the same time, it’s important to show individual features of thinking and abilities, to acquire skills of equal cooperation of all participants in the educational process. It’s the gender approach to educational activities that meets the requirements of modern education and science, as it takes into account the interests of both sexes and helps to harmonize the processes of intersex social interaction of educational entities based on the idea of ​​gender parity.” said the head of the university. He also stressed the importance of creating a gender-sensitive educational environment with equal opportunities for self-realization.

In her welcoming speech, Hannelore Valier, Head of the EUAM Lviv Field Office, stressed that the issue of gender equality is a priority for the European Union. “In all the projects we implement, and in general in our activities, the gender component is always taken into account,” the Mission spokeswoman said.

Ensuring equal rights and opportunities for women and men is very important for law enforcement. That is why we have developed and presented “Guidelines for the integration of gender approaches in the system of training for the security and defense sector,” said Kateryna Levchenko, adding that Lviv State University of Internal Affairs took an active part in this work.

And, of course, the main goal of the Mission is the rule of law and support for the Ukrainian law enforcement agencies involved in this process. According to some scientific studies, one of the most effective ways to fight corruption is the education of young people. So we decided that it would be useful to start such a campaign. To do so, we have joined forces with the Hans Seidel Foundation, which is funded by the German government and works in Ukraine, the Republic of Moldova and Romania to uphold democratic values ​​in those countries”, Joseph Djulai said.

“We were glad to see that more than a hundred representatives from different universities have expressed their desire to participate in this competition.

“Education is effective when it starts at an early age. None of the repressive measures taken by law enforcement agencies to prevent corruption will have such an effect as high-quality preventive work with young people. After all, the initiative to promote anti-corruption among higher education institutions is very interesting and necessary and was absolutely positively received by our applicants. It’s gratifying that international organizations, in particular the EUAM, noted the work of LvSUIA students. Therefore, I would like to express my sincere gratitude from myself and the staff of the university for the support, initiative and for the idea of ​​introducing intolerance to corruption,said Roman Blahuta.

During the meeting they discussed the deepening of partnership and implementation of joint projects in the field of education and science.

LvSUIA Rector Roman Blahuta noted that thanks to the cooperation with the Mission it was possible to successfully implement the ideas of creating training modules, which became practical platforms for various trainings.

LvSUIA has been fruitfully cooperating with the Mission. Recently, EUAM representatives donated a laser 3D scanner to the university, which is used by foreign forensic scientists during investigative actions.

Such scanning is used in the USA, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Austria, the Czech Republic. In Ukraine, this technology is just being implemented, so Lviv State University of Internal Affairs has a unique opportunity to study in detail the international experience of using 3D-scanners in forensics and share experiences with practices.

“Thanks to this device, we will also be able to create an online library of various venues and material objects, which will become part of the virtual educational space and will be used during lectures and practical classes for cadets,” said Ruslan Shekhavtsov.

In addition, the EU Advisory Mission recently donated equipment for first aid to the university. The set includes mannequins for training the skills of cardiopulmonary resuscitation of adults and infants, protective shields, gloves and other equipment.
