The final presentation of the CEINAV project in Slovenia happened on Wednesday, 31st August 2016 at the Slovenian Ethnographic Museum in Ljubljana. The event was opened with general overview of the project – its phases, methodology and activities – by dr. Lana Zdravković, followed by the presentation of the document “Transnational Foundation for Guidelines for Ethical Practice in Interventions against Interpersonal Violence”, with the emphasis on the issue of voices of the survivors, and elaboration of the ethical dilemmas in interventions – especially minority cases – by dr. Vlasta Jalušič.
The introduction was followed by the premiere screening of the documentary film “Everything I Told Them” (the first public screening of the film in Slovenia), after which the public applauded and expressed their satisfaction.

The second part of the closing event continued with the panel “Violence in the Private Sphere and Ethic of Intervention”, conceptualized and moderated by dr. Vlasta Jalušič. Participants were: Katja Zabukovec Kerin, Association for non-violent communication; dr. Jasna Podreka, Faculty of Arts; Katarina Vučko, The Peace Institute; Mojca Dobnikar, the founder of the first SOS telephone for women and children; and dr. Dragan Petrovec, Institute of criminology at the Faculty of Law. They all addressed particular issues from their expertise and work and opened a further debate on our findings, particularly in the EU and Slovenian context.
Approximately 30 people attended the event. Wider public, students, scholars and some professionals who previously took active part in the project's workshops were present as well. Unfortunately, no survivors (victims of various types of violence considered within the research) attended the event due to other obligations. The great majority of the participants were very interested and impressed with the results of the research. A small group questioned why CEINAV did not study violence against men as well; the researchers explained this by reference to the Istanbul Convention.
