At least 150 of NOVIB's partners in the South and Eastern Europe maintain projects to combat violence against women. NOVIB wants to know how it, as a donor agency, can most effectively contribute to the elimination of violence against women. NOVIB will engage in an online discussion with the 150 partners that will result in a policy guideline for "good practices" in this field.

The project began in January 2001. The IIAV and fellow-women's information center Isis-International Manila will lead the process, Isis providing skilled facilitation to the meeting and the IIAV bringing in its knowledge of sharing knowledge using information and communication technologies. On the web site,, the partners and NOVIB will share information and examples of successful projects. The web site is accessible to participants in this project only.
