On the occasion of 15 March – International Day of action against police brutality – Centre for Civic Education (CCE) would like to indicate on the insufficient sanctioning of police officer performance, who act restrictively on the freedom of citizens and respect of human rights.

In the framework of the educational programme ”Contemporary tendencies of critical thought”
and in response to popular demand
CCE presents, for the tenth jubilee time in Montenegro, the world-renowned PEACE EDUCATION PROGRAMME (PEP)
This programme of weekly, hour-and-a-half long workshops, lasts for 10 consecutive weeks. It is created by The Prem Rawat Foundation (TPRF), with the purpose of helping participants to discover inner resources, recognize their innate value, develop positive life skills and explore the possibility of personal peace.
On the occasion of 8 March, International Women’s Day, Centre for Civic Education (CCE) indicates that gender equality and full accomplishment of women’s rights in Montenegrin society are still far-fetched. In spite of the numerous legal solutions and institutions that established in line with European and international standards, status of women is still slowly changing, and they mainly remain out of the circle of political decision-makers, often exposed to violence, mobbing and various forms of discrimination on working posts, without the adequate protection and support.
Protests by group of women – mothers, who have been standing for days in front of the Parliament of Montenegro and fighting against the reduction of compensation – legally acquired for lifetime, which is yet another result of miscalculated and short-sighted political decision, best illustrate the position of women in Montenegrin society. Every aspect of story regarding the compensation for mothers with three or more children is a mirror image of misunderstanding of the role of women, their needs, rights and concept of gender equality.
