Initiated in 2012 by the CEE Network for Gender Issues, the Korčula School is a unique free-thinking space for a forward-looking exchange of views on critical ideological and political issues. How can we transform politics to promote gender equality?

The school brings together women and men political leaders from centre-left and social-democratic parties, experts, political activists and feminists, especially from South Eastern Europe, to discuss gender equality issues.

This edition was a high-level event bringing together representatives from the region and Europe to share the lessons learned from the Balkan conflicts of the nineties that may be relevant for the current war in Ukraine and its resolution. Gender lens was applied in addressing the above topics.

The discussions on the first day were designed to be interconnected and provide a more comprehensive perspective on the differences, similarities, consequences and solutions relevant to the present state of affairs regarding the war in Ukraine and the Western Balkans.
The second day of the Korčula Think Tank was devoted to social democracy 3.0 from a European and regional perspective.

Together with the CEE Gender Network, FEPS conducted a project on the gender pay gap in the region. The findings were presented at the Korčula Think Tank.
