Korčula School: a feminist lens to economic recovery

The “Korčula School” Think Tank gathers women and men leaders from South Eastern Europe and beyond to discuss political, economic, social and cultural aspects of gender equality issues, as well as women’s political leadership.

The 2020 Korčula School discussion focused on South Eastern Europe/regional perspectives on the crisis provoked by the CORONA-19 pandemic, as well as the economic and social policies to address the post-crisis from a feminist lens, the key role and precariousness of the social care sector and the current political, economic and social environment in the region and implications for human rights and gender equality.

The 2020 Korčula School was conducted on-line over four days 1-4 October by the CEE Gender Network with its partners, FEPS, PES Women and regional partners.

In the framework of this School, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the CEE Gender Network organised on 2 October the roundtable ‘How to strengthen gender equality and decent work in social care systems’, which aimed at analyzing the care models in place in the region whilst exploring tailored, progressive recommendations for a fair, well-functioning care economy in Europe.

This constituted an important building block of the #Eucares4care Roadshow part of the joint FES-FEPS project “Femnist Europe – Does Europe care for care?”.
