Workshop on the labour market consequences of gender segregation in vocational education




The Budapest Institute evaluated the extent of horizontal gender segregation in vocational middle education in Hungary, as well as its potential labour market consequences. Based on this research, we held a stakeholder workshop with the participation of education researchers, representatives of employers and unions, as well as NGOs and education authorities, with the aim of incubating policy proposals.

The workshop was part of a project that aims to raise awareness on the labor market situation of women in the Visegrad countries, and is conducted by the Budapest Institute in collaboration with regional partners (EsFem - Slovakia, Gender Studies – Checz Republic, KARAT Coalition – Poland). The project was financed by the Visegrad Fund.
