Violence against women and girls is a widespread human rights violation of epidemic proportions in Albania. The roots of violence originate in patriarchal traditions and customs, rigid gender identities and roles, the “system” of honor and shame, habits of hierarchy within the family, and control between family generations. According to INSTAT, 52.9% (1 in 2) of girls and women have experienced some form of violence in our country. 61.8% of them have experienced violence in love relationships. We believe that young people should be prepared to identify and combat the phenomenon in question through knowledge and open conversation! To discuss the problem, we had invited Lawyers Anila Pjetri Frroku to share with our young people practical knowledge from her daily experience of legal treatment of the consequences of violence. Among the things discussed were the functioning of protection orders, shortcomings in the implementation of the law on domestic violence, the importance of the strategic role of SPZ (Area Policing Specialist), school psychologist, and other parties, for prevention, reporting and the treatment of violence that is not always carried out with proper professional care. Finally, it is extremely worrying that in the geographical territory of Lezha there is a lack of infrastructure dedicated specifically for the rehabilitation and successful reintegration of victims and perpetrators in society. Violence is a dynamic phenomenon that threatens to destroy the mental and physical health of victims in the face of this reality. Imprisonment in many cases, exacerbates the situation as the abuser does not become part of any rehabilitation program to address anti-social behavior at the root.
