CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
The OSCE invites you to apply for the 8 OSCE Dialogue Academy for Young Women, which will take place from 16 to
25 September 2022 in Austria.

About the OSCE Dialogue Academy
Since 2015, the OSCE Mission in Kosovo and the OSCE Mission to Serbia have actively supported the OSCE Dialogue
Academy for Young Women (DA) gathering participants from their two respective areas of responsibility. Every year,24 young
women from Prishtinë/Priština and Belgrade are selected to convene for an intensive ten-day programme to learn and
discuss on the topics of women in politics, dialogue and peacebuilding. Participants are presented with distinguished
speakers and internationally recognized experts, who motivate and foster participants’ personal and professional
development through thought-provoking discussions and experience-sharing sessions. To date, seven DA editions were
implemented and in total,160 young women participated.
Upon completion of the DA, participants join the DA Alumnae Network.The Network has been active in organizing a range of
activities across both societies with the objective to promote peace, confidence-building,solidarity,women’s empowerment
and dialogue. Since 2015, Alumnae have implemented more than 15 small-scale projects, participated in 11 Alumnae
exchange meetings, and contributed to different events in close co-operation with the OSCE.
The DA builds upon the values and the ideas enshrined in the process known as the “Follow Us”Initiative. Established in 2012
by the OSCE Mission in Kosovo and the OSCE Mission to Serbia, the “Follow Us”Initiative gathered prominent women from
Prishtinë/Priština and Belgrade, to foster contact and dialogue between the two societies focusing on joint issues of concern,
such as women in politics,dialogue and mediation,gender equality and women’s empowerment.
