Human Capital constitutes a valuable factor in the process of economic, political and social transformation. The economic challenges of the past years have revealed a need for policy actors, namely states, stakeholders, civil society, academia, to go beyond the classical perception of economic growth and to focus more on the empowerment of human capital as key element for achieving sustainable development.
Within this framework, the ICBSS successfully organised the Round Table Discussion on “Investing in Human Capital in the South East Europe: The dynamic role of women and the youth”, on 1 April 2014, in Athens, with the support of the General Secretariat for Gender Equality of the Hellenic Ministry of Interior.
Following up on the successful organisation of the event, the ICBSS is promoting the present joint publication based on the innovative ideas heard during the event.
