2016 Korčula School will address the urgent political issue of the unprecedented influx of women, men and children from war torn and politically and economically unstable areas of the Middle East, especially Iraq and Syria, but equally of countries like Afghanistan, Pakistan, African countries and others. Women refugees lack resources, food, housing, access to health and social services, protection and security. There is a rise in child labour, early marriages, prostitution and trafficking with women and children as well as all sorts of sexual harassment, violence, abuse and exploitation.
While looking at immediate challenges of the crisis, the School will address mid-term and longer-term perspectives of integration, education, employment and will take a comprehensive look at the crisis from a gender disaggregated lens.
The “Korčula School”is intended to gather women and men leaders from South Eastern Europe to discuss gender equality issues. Now in its fifth year, the “School” has become a recognized think tank because of its innovative, open, progressive and substantive approach to equality and human rights.
