Political, economic and social challenges in Southeastern Europe – Impact on gender Equality with the support of the CEE Network for Gender Issues

From 1963-1974  the Korčula Praxis School was a unique venue  for political, ideological exchange of views and discussions on the „other side“ of the Cold War ideological divide. It became a place for the gathering of intellectuals from the East and  West. The municipal Cultural Center was a venue for forward looking debates on critical philosophy, sociology and political perspectives.

The objective of this “Korčula School” is to discuss the political, social and economic choices that Southeastern Europe has, particularly from the perspective of gender equality. The “school” will address, through a gender equality lens, the lessons, experiences and possible solutions that can help in responding to the current challenges on the field of social welfare, human rights, employment opportunities. The focus is on implications for women’s empowerment and gender equality as a precondition for strengthening democracy, political participation of women at all levels and economic and social development that supports gender equality goals. It will, therefore, also guide the articulation of FEPS and CEE Network for Gender Issues’ programme and activities in support of women in public and political participation and in addressing pressing economic and social issues impacting women in the region today.
