CEE Gender Network is pleased to publish the report for Korčula School 2014 which was held in town Korčula (Croatia) from Friday, 26 to Sunday, 28 September 2014. The third meeting, since 2012, is organized by the CEE Network for Gender Issues in collaboration with the Center for New Initiatives (Zagreb) and under the financial sponsorship of the Olof Palme International Center.
Some of the key messages are: a.) many countries ratify important documents and resolutions to look good in the eyes of international community b.) often the emphasis is on violence in the family rather than on violence against the woman as a victim, there is a problem with implementation of law c.) Gender sensitive budgeting is ignored, or limited d.) sexual harassment is directly relating to the core of women’s human rights and equality

The CEE Network Workshop report has been published and in great details it shows the biggest problems of today’s woman and the very necessity of supporting women to run for political positions. The questions regarding the issues of women in politics and gender gap have never been so relevant and needed especially with up-and-coming elections for the European parliament.
CEE Gender Network and PES Women, with support of European Forum for Democracy and Solidarity, Olaf Palme International Center and Centre for New Initiative, organized CEE Network Workshop ‘Global Governance – challenges, opportunities, best practices and politicies’ in Budapest during 14th and 15th December in 2013.

Sonja Lokar, the Executive director of CEE Gender Network wrote a report about findings and recommendations regarding Women’s Political Participation in Moroccan Political Parties.
In October 2013, the National Democratic Institute (NDI) invited Ms. Sonja Lokar to Morocco to lead an assessment of women’s political participation in Moroccan political parties.
From October 25 to November 1, 2013, the assessment team held 22 meetings with a cross-section of women in advocacy groups, local and national elected office, and party leadership to discuss the current state of gender equality in Moroccan political parties and how best to improve it. This report summarizes these findings and provides general recommendations for leaders and activists, with a focus on the key role of political parties in improving gender equity.
