Gender-Based Discrimination And Labour in Western Balkans

This is the second edition of this research, conducted by a coalition of women’s civil society organisations (CSOs) in the Western Balkans (WB). It aimed to identify shortcomings in the relevant legal framework; awareness and prevalence of gender-based discrimination related to labour; the extent to which people have filed claims; and how institutions have treated such cases. Conducted in 2018 and repeated in 2021, the research involved mixed methods, including a desk review, online surveys, and interviews. This regional sector gender analysis was conducted as part of the Action “Empowering CSOs in Combatting Discrimination and Furthering Women’s Labour Rights”, in six WB countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Kosovo, and Serbia), supported by the European Union and co-funded by Swedish Development Cooperation.
