Second session of the training on Honour related Violence

Last December 4th 2017, the second session of the training on Honour related Violence addressed to the Polizia di Stato, was held in Campobasso, at the Institute for Deputy-Inspectors. Trainees were 160 Deputy-Inspectors, women and men, involved in a wider training on criminology and gender violence. In the frame of their training, a whole day has been devoted to the Honour Related Violence, according to the contents and tools produced within HASP project. The work started with criminological issues related to gender violence and honour related violence.

A video (“La sposa bambina”, Italian version of the movie “Ana Nojoom bent alasherah wamotalagah”) was used as emotional trigger on which develop categories for understanding HRV and competences on “how to do”. Presentations proposed the main results of the WS1 (analysis of the phenomenon) and applied the training tools prepared by the project staff. Case studies were used for promoting the analysis of dynamics typical of HRV; in particular, the Saleem case happened in Italy and the Chafia case happened in Canada. Case studies were used for proposing the risk assessment practices and tools and for understanding the need for organizing territorial integrated interventions. The debate dealt with cases matter of security and prevention interventions carried out by the Italian State Police. The participants, both women and men, stayed for longer than expected in order to deeper analyse the HRV and in particular issues related to multicultural aspects. The expectations related to the training were high also due to some running project of the Italian State Police addressing gender violence. Many Deputy-Inspectors, women and men, stayed after the end of the training for debating with the trainers on recent cases they have been dealing with, so as to better understand the risk assessment, the prevention and intervention issues. At the end of the training the trained deputy-inspectors received the “Certificate” of “Ambassador of Honour”.
