Director of the school: Antonija Josifovska, PhD
The Summer School's basic intention is to offer to the participants an opportunity to learn about many different experiences from the countries with an extensive tradition in Industrial Relations, as well as from the countries of the Eastern and Central Europe which have opted for the principle of the free market economy. The initiative is to promote, with all available means, the process of a social dialogue. In addition, in order to contribute to the development of the national economy, it should also promote the prevention and amicable settlement of disputes, especially through a tripartite cooperation and by utilizing the mechanisms of information and consultation. This is especially true if we bear in mind that the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, countries that are trying to find their way to the integration into the European Union in the years to come. Participants will also have an opportunity to learn concrete techniques of the tripartite negotiations, collective bargaining and signing of collective contracts.

"Reading the Balkan Subject and it's Genders"
Director of the school: Prof. Katerina Kolozova, PhD
The principle goal of the Ohrid Summer School in Gender Studies in 2001 will be the establishing of the conceptual and methodological specificities, or even specific needs, of the theoretical and scientific investigations into the gender issues in the region. Through the application of the methodologies pertaining to the contemporary theoretical trends in the field (of gender studies), the OSS in Gender Studies will attempt to establish a certain number of gender issues considered specific for the region. By doing this it will inevitably address the more general question of the “Balkan subjectivity(-ies)” and identity(-ies), although from the specific perspective of the theories of gender.
