Poashtu, kjo tryezë pati për qëllim të përçoj thirrjen për zhvillim të hulumtimeve, avancim të politikave dhe programeve me fokus në parandalimin dhe reagimin ndaj formave të dhunës.Paneli i përbërë nga Albulena Haxhiu – Ministre e Drejtësisë, Donjeta Kelmendi – KOMF, Nona Zicherman – UNICEF Kosovë, Dr. Bergita Curri – Specialiste e Mjekësisë Ligjore hapën diskutimin duke ndarë të dhëna mbi dhunën ndaj vajzave në Kosovë dhe duke bërë thirrje për përmirësim të situatës. Në panelin e dytë morën pjesë profesionistë që punojnë në mbrojtjen e fëmijës, si Adile Shaqiri Basha – Ministria e Financave, Punës dhe Transfereve, Azize Sekiraqa – Ministria e Arsimit, Shkencës, Teknologjisë dhe Inovacionit, Valbona Çitaku – Shpresa dhe Shtëpitë e Fëmijëve-Kosovë, Kapiten Melihate Sefedini – Policia e Kosovës dhe Valdet Plakolli – Psikolog shkollor. Paneli i profesionistëve diskutuan mbi gjendjen aktuale sa i përket dhunës me baze gjinore dhe ofruan rekomandimet për parandalimin dhe adresimin e kësaj çështje. Ndër rekomandimet kryesore që u adresuan nga KOMF ishin:- Krijimin e programeve për parandalimin e dhunës dhe fuqizimin e sistemit parandalues dhe referues në shkolla;- Inspektimin e trajtimit të rasteve të dhunës seksuale ndaj fëmijëve, përfshirë trajtimin e kryesve të veprave penale që kanë të bëjnë me dhunë seksuale, gjatë tre viteve të fundit;- Krijimin e databazës së personave të dënuar për vepra penale kundër integritetit seksual të fëmijëve dhe rrjedhimisht ndalimin e qasjes së tyre tek fëmijët, sipas modeleve ekzistuese në hapësirën Evropiane, duke u bazuar në Ligjin për Mbrojtjen e Fëmijës; - Ashpërsimin e dënimeve që shqiptohen ndaj kryerësve të veprave penale kundër integritetit seksual brenda limiteve të përcaktuara me Kodin Penal;- Ofrimin urgjent të trajtimit dhe mbrojtjes adekuate për të gjithë fëmijët, viktima të ngacmimit apo abuzimit seksual;- Përgjegjësi dhe llogaridhënie nga profesionistët e mandatuar për mbrojtje të fëmijës, në rast dështimi gjatë ushtrimit të obligimit ligjor për trajtimin efikas të këtyre rasteve. ...
