“As part of the broad platform for societal dialogue “SDGs for All”, coordinated by the Ana and Vlade Divac Foundation, the Center for Advanced Economic Studies, Belgrade Open School, Center for Democracy Foundation, TOC – Association for the Development of Sustainable Communities, BFPE Foundation for Responsible Society, and Smart kolektiv, with the support of the Swiss and German Governments and implemented by GIZ, we continuously publish an annual report on how civil society perceives Serbia’s progress in sustainable development.”

“All goals of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development are interconnected and mutually reinforcing. When we talk about Goal 5, Gender Equality, European reports indicate that Serbia has made positive strides in some areas of gender equality, but has also stagnated in areas that we consider crucial, such as the gender pay gap and women’s representation in senior positions. We have not made progress in these areas and as a society, we must address them,” stated Nataša Vučković, Secretary General of the Center for Democracy Foundation, at the launch of the new Master’s program in Law and Gender at the University of Belgrade Faculty of Law.

“I see this Master’s program as a crucial piece of the puzzle that should contribute to moving us forward. In addition to deepening legal studies in this field, its value connotation is exceptionally important amidst current attempts to undermine gender equality. It seems to me that through the objectivity of the scientific approach emerging from this program, we can expect contributions to the advancement and greater popularization of gender equality, which is a vital element in our efforts to reach European levels of democracy.”

On June 21, the University of Belgrade Faculty of Law, with support from the Center for Democracy Foundation and the Commissioner for the Protection of Equality, organized the launch of the new Master’s program in Law and Gender, aiming to promote gender-sensitive approaches in legal studies and higher education overall, and contribute to raising awareness about the importance of gender equality for the promotion of human rights and rule of law. The program represents an important contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals of the Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development, focusing on quality education and gender equality.

Participants included: Prof. Dr. Marko Jovanović, Vice Dean for International Cooperation, Faculty of Law; Tatjana Macura, Minister without Portfolio responsible for gender equality issues; Prof. Dr. Dragica Vujadinović, coordinator of the LAWGEM project; Tatjana Prijić, Acting Assistant Commissioner for the Protection of Equality; Nataša Vučković, Secretary General of the Center for Democracy Foundation; Marija Vlajković, Assistant; Ana Memeti, teaching assistant; representatives from the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the academic community, government administration, independent institutions, civil society organizations, and media.
