OSCE Trains Trainers on Domestic Violence Prosecution in Tajikistan


The OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe (the Office) organized a five-day training of trainers for the Institute for advanced training under the General Prosecutor’s Office in Dushanbe. The training brought together 8 participants, including seven management and teaching staff of the Institute for advanced training of prosecutors in Tajikistan and a representative from the General Prosecutor’s Office.

The aim of the training was to enhance the participants’ capacity to train prosecutors on effective prosecution and monitoring of domestic violence cases. The training was based on a draft-training module on “Prevention, identification and investigation of domestic violence related crimes”, developed with the support of the Office. The event also aimed to improve the trainees’ understanding of gender equality, domestic violence, the particularities of investigating and prosecuting domestic violence cases, the immediate measures needed for ensuring the timely protection of victims, and the related national and international legal framework.

The training is part of the Office’s support for the General Prosecutor’s Office of Tajikistan to institutionalize the training of prosecutors in the field of investigation and prosecution of domestic violence cases. The Office will continue supporting Tajikistan  to fulfil its OSCE commitments related to prevention and combatting violence against women, including domestic violence.
