Women’s Rights in Western Balkans serves as a benchmark for the six Western Balkan’s accession countries (Albania, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia and Serbia) regarding women’s rights and influence, for comparisons over time.
The report is published yearly and this is the fourth edition. The three indicators researched are: women in politics, gender-based violence and the situation for women human rights defenders. The scope of the current edition is to update relevant 2018/19 statistics and resources for each of the indicators, in each of the six Western Balkan countries. For each indicator, authors tested the 2018/19 figures against earlier ones in order to determine to what extent Western Balkan women’s social positions have improved or worsened.
