Un marché du travail plus inclusif pour les femmes du Sud-Caucase

Une femme lit des informations

01.11.2017 - 31.07.2021

Dans les trois pays du Sud-Caucase (Arménie, Azerbaïdjan et Géorgie), de nombreuses femmes sont victimes de discriminations sur le marché du travail. Faute d’une politique égalitaire et créatrice d’emplois dans l’économie formelle, les femmes travaillent de manière informelle et ne sont donc pas protégées. Le projet “Women’s Economic Empowerment in the South Caucasus” entend favoriser l’autonomisation des femmes dans le secteur économique afin de faciliter leur entrée égalitaire sur le marché du travail ou dans l’auto-entrepreneuriat.
