This year’s 6th Korčula School was held on 26 and 27 August 2017 in Cavtat, Croatia.
The theme of this year’s School is “Policy Transformation – Intergenerational Dialogue on Gender Equality and Solidarity“.
More than 40 high-level participants from the political and progressive options from the public and non-governmental sector, from the region and the European Union countries discussed political and development challenges that require the change of neo-liberal and conservative “solutions” to social justice, human and gender rights and social and inter-generational solidarity.
Among the participants were Peđa Grbin and former Interior Minister Ranko Ostojić, President of the Democratic Party of Serbia Dragan Šutanovac and SDP Montenegro President Ranko Krivokapić, President of PES Women Zita Gurmai, President of the Parliamentary Group of Italian Socialist Party and President of the Human Rights Committee Pia Locatelli, Chair of the CEE Gender Network Daša Šilović as well as many other distinguished experts in his field.
More about School
For six consecutive years, the Korčula School organizes the Central-Eastern European Network for Gender Equality (also known as CEE Gender Network) in cooperation with the Center for the new initiatives (Zagreb).
The aim of the Korčula School is to bring together women and men from the Southeast Europe to discuss gender equality through an open, contentious political and ideological dialogue that looks at the state of society and political trends from the standpoint of the social democratic and progressive vision of human rights, gender equality and the strengthening of democracy in the countries region.
Over the years the school has become a recognizable think tank for its innovative, open, progressive and substitutive approach.
