2021 Korčula School: Transforming Politics Through a Gender Lens

Croatia / Online Hybrid event, 27-29 August 2021

The "Korčula School" has become a recognised regional South Eastern European think tank that focuses on progressive and social democratic policies to promote gender equality.

Initiated in 2012 by the CEE Network for Gender Issues the “Korčula School” is designed to be a unique political, ideological, free thinking space for a substantive and forward looking exchange of views on critical ideological and political issues on transforming politics to promote gender equality.


On the occasion of the 2021 edition, the Foundation for European Progressive Studies and the CEE Network for Gender Issues joined forces for the second day of this event, through discussions on regional and gender inequalities coupled with a training focusing on gender budgeting designed to provide skills for participants eager to apply gender mainstreaming tools in their day-to-day activities.

The “Korčula School” brings together women and men political leaders from center left and socialdemocratic parties, experts, political activists and feminists, especially from South Eastern Europe to discuss gender equality issues.
