Training and education

Knowledge about men’s violence against women and the consequences of violence is important to provide a good response to women subjected to violence.

Knowledge is also important in order to change the values and attitudes in society as well as to improve preventive measures. This is why training and education is one of the cornerstones of NCK’s work.
