IOM Ireland Capacity Building Training

IOM Ireland – Protect II Project
Capacity-Building Training in Cultural Competency and Understanding

ABOUT PROTECT II

Protect II is a collaborative project between IOM Ireland and the Department of Justice. The aim of the project is to support and empower migrant and ethnic minority survivors of gender-based violence and suspected victims of trafficking to access needed services. We must recognize that culture can be a barrier to service access and provision in Ireland. Protect II provides a capacity-building training for frontline service providers on cultural competency and understanding, a separate training on cultural mediation practice, and 11 cultural mediators ready to assist in bridging the gap between service users and service providers.

CAPACITY-BUILDING TRAINING ON CULTURAL COMPETENCY AND UNDERSTANDING

The Protect II project offers a capacity-building training in cultural competency and understanding for frontline service providers who may work directly with migrant and ethnic minority survivors of gender-based violence and suspected victims of trafficking. The training covers the role of culture, barriers to service access and provision, working with cultural mediators, interpreters, and advocates, and working with migrants and ethnic minorities.

A breakdown of the training modules is attached.

This training is targeted at services who work with survivors of domestic, sexual, and gender-based violence and suspected victims of trafficking. The trainings will be given in two half-day sessions from 1pm-5pm each day on the following dates:

  • January 18-19
  • January 25-26
  • February 14-15

If you are interested in participating in the training, please email Elizabeth Romary at eromary@iom.int for registration and more information.
