    Workshop Report: Work-life balance and other factors affecting women’s participation in civilian CSDP missions

    On 8 October 2021, the third Cluster 5 virtual workshop on women’s participation in civilian CSDP Missions was held focusing on work-life balance in civilian crisis management missions. It explored some of the challenges of reconciling work, private and family life, which has been identified as a barrier affecting particularly women’s opportunities and choices to seek deployment in crisis management missions. Removing barriers and promoting conducive working environment affects positively the recruitment and retention of women experts. Studies have shown that policies and practices designed to encourage work-life balance can play an important role in attracting, motivating and retaining highly skilled and diverse experts.
