Skills Development for Employability and Citizenship: the Southeast European Experience within a Global Context
To focus attention on the importance of TVET for Southeast European UNESCO Member States, the UNESCO-UNEVOC International Centre, together with the Education Sector in UNESCO, the Austrian National Commission for UNESCO, working closely with the European Training Foundation (ETF), the International Labour Organization (ILO), the UNESCO Institute for Education (UIE) and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, organised a meeting on Skills Development for Employability and Citizenship. The meeting was held in the United Nations Centre in Vienna, Austria, from 21 - 24 November 2004.
For South East European countries, the attainment of skills for employability and citizenship can assist rebuilding communities as well as economies. The challenge is not only to reform their TVET systems, but to do so within the context of overcoming the consequences of conflict and instability which prevailed during the 1990s.
