Although women constitute half of the population, their participation in the implementation of foreign, European and security policy in the V4 countries is disproportionately lower compared to men. Despite substantial progress in recent decades, the representation of female expert voices is not sufficient and fair. Contributing to this imbalance are several persistent issues faced by women in all V4 states.
The aim of the project is to strengthen the position of women from the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary in the foreign policy sectors, by creating an international network of contacts, exchanging know-how and inspiration from individual countries or by raising awareness of this issue.
We will organize a meeting of female experts from all four countries in Prague and Warsaw. They will not only be able to exchange and discuss their professional experiences, but will also have the opportunity to meet politicians, representatives of government institutions and other relevant organizations.
AMO cooperates on this project with organizations from other V4 countries: Casimir Pulaski Foundation (Poland), Centre for Euro-Atlantic Integration and Democracy (CEID, Hungary) and the Research Centre of the Slovak Foreign Policy Association (SFPA, Slovakia).
The project is co-financed by the Governments of the Czechia, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia through Visegrad Grants from International Visegrad Fund. The mission of the fund is to advance ideas for sustainable regional cooperation in Central Europe.
