A series of workshops, which were also attended by Slovenian lecturers, offered the participants an opportunity to improve negotiation and mediation techniques and increase the involvement of women in them, which is crucial for any process of democratic transition, dialogue and transparency.

Slovenia advocates a peaceful solution to the Venezuelan crisis, which can only be achieved through an inclusive political dialogue. Support for Venezuela’s democratic forces is an integral part of these efforts. Women’s empowerment and mediation, key pillars of successful transition processes, have been among the priority activities of Slovenian foreign policy and international development cooperation for many years.
