To the large extent, this issue is becoming increasingly important in less developed economies including the Republic of Serbia. In this paper, the focus will be on one specific aspect of gender equality – gender sensitive or gender responsive budgeting in the local self-government units. Considering that economic equality is almost always a pre-condition for any other equality, success in incorporating the gender equality concept into the budgetting process might determine the nature of relationship between the genders. This also (as the most frequent manifestation of these relationships) includes the position of women in local communities. Special attention in the paper will be paid to development and functioning of the institutional mechanisms for the achivement of gender equality, as well as specifics of gender responsive budgeting in the local self-governments in Serbia.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> 2018-12-17T14:31:47+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Women Entrepreneurship in Serbia – Potentials and Constraints 2019-03-21T16:00:43+00:00 Olivera Jovanovic Milena Lazic <p><em>In today’s modern society, entrepreneurship is considered to be the driver of economic and social development and the important source of competitive advantage. With that regard and taking into account the empirically proven positive relationship between the gender equality and the level of sustainable economic and social development, the subject of this paper is the assessment of the position of women entrepreneurs in Serbia. The main objective is to identify business and environmental barriers with which female entrepreneurs are confronted. The results of conducted research suggest that there exists a huge potential for the development of women entrepreneurship in Serbia. The women entrepreneurs in Serbia are confronted to significant barriers in their everyday business activities especially taking into account the difficulties in accessing the necessary information about potential markets and technology and even the potential sources for their financing. At the same time they are facing with family care activities and other social norms within the community in which they live.</em> <em>The results are useable for creating supportive and encouraging environment for entrepreneurship in Serbia, especially for women-owned enterprises during business development.</em></p> 2018-12-17T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement## Women Entrepreneurship in Developing, Developed and Transitional Economies – Differences and Similarities 2019-03-21T16:00:40+00:00 Claudia Longoria <p><em>Entrepreneurship</em><em>is viewed as an opportunity to drive growth and to help employment in many countries.
