KWN and EWLA Co-host Workshop with KWN Members on Disability Rights and Gender in Kosovo

On January 27, the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN) and the European Women Lawyers Association (EWLA) co-hosted the workshop “Disability Rights and Gender in Kosovo”. 

On this occasion, the practical and legal aspects of implementing the rights of women with disabilities as well as opportunities to improve this situation were discussed with KWN member organizations that focus on the rights of women with disabilities. 

EWLA experts Katharina Miller, president, and Sylvia Cleff Le Divellec discussed discrimination in their countries as well as conferred about what needs to be done to combat multiple forms of gender inequalities present in Kosovo. 

As this collaboration enters its fourth year, Miller has again highly appreciated the opportunity to share their experience with KWN members, not leaving aside the lessons they learn from these fruitful discussions.  

“As in the past, it is a pleasure for us to hear from KWN and member organizations. Today we will share many important things together, and we will certainly learn from you, your experiences, challenges and successes”, she said, among other things. 

During 2020, KWN and EWLA hosted a four-day workshop on “Equal Rights and Gender Equality for Women and Men in Kosovo”. Here, KWN member organizations, members of the Lobby for Gender Equality and the Coalition for Equality along with KWN staff, discussed how to advocate for change and the EU accession process, especially from a gender perspective.

This activity was held as a part of the “Strengthening Women’s Participation in Politics” four-year long initiative, supported by the European Union (EU) Office in Kosovo.
