Owing to the support of the SOLIDAR network within the project Achieving Social Europe for All, which is financed by the European Commission, the participants had the opportunity to learn more about comparative practices through examples of good practice from Italy, Spain and Albania in order to see their application in a social and legislative framework of the Republic of Serbia, all with the aim of strengthening social dialogue and protecting the social and economic rights of citizens.
