KWN Holds Third Membership Meeting for 2020

Around 30 participants were part of KWN third membership meeting of this year that was held online through the ZOOM platform on September 7.   

The meeting was opened by KWN Executive Director, Igballe Rogova, who mentioned the need of wearing masks as a precautionary measure against the even greater spread of the COVID-19 virus.  

Rogova informed the participants that KWN would finally launch the report “Where is the money for women’s right?” which clearly identifies the need for more support for women’s groups. During this event, there will be speakers from Kosovo institutions and donors; the speaker from the UN will be Mrs. Ulrika Richardson as well as other donors who will explain why it is important to support women’s organizations. 

Further, she highlighted the importance of involving women and young women in peace and security processes. She mentioned that the findings of the research report Where Is My Seat at the Table will serve as a guide to further advocate for meaningful participation of women in decision making and at the negotiation table.
