Women’s economic empowerment in the Western Balkans - Meeting 3


Building upon the success of the first two meetings, held in 2022, the third meeting of this Working Group will involve around 30-40 experts, including national and local government representatives from the Western Balkans, European and international institutions, civil society, academia and the private sector. Drawing from the Working Group’s earlier findings, the third meeting will set a special focus on women in rural areas and women in agriculture.

Creating new opportunities for women in the regional labour market is crucial for sustainable economic development in the Western Balkans. This is more important than ever given the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the long road ahead to social and economic recovery.

As part of its Balkan Journey, Friends of Europe’s Working Group aims to identify the challenges to women achieving greater economic empowerment in the Western Balkans, as well as recommendations for overcoming them. The Working Group is carried out in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).

This event will take place in Prishtina, Kosovo.* Follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram or Facebook, and join the #BalkanJourney discussion!
