Mutual learning in the Western Balkans

As part of its Bridging (BB) Function, the European Centre has established collaboration agreements with relevant stakeholders in eleven EU accession countries, potential EU accession countries, and Eastern Partnership countries (BB countries). With the support of the Austrian Federal Ministry for Social Affairs, Health, Care, and Consumer Protection, there is regular exchange on needs for research-based and policy-relevant knowledge on social policy. By implementing mutual learning activities in the BB countries, the European Centre provided answers to countries’ needs related to coping with the health and social consequences of COVID-19, to combat poverty, and to develop the quality of social services, including de-institutionalisation and gender equality. 

The project reached a total of 535 individuals in 11 Mutual Learning events. 79,25% of participants were women.
