The advancement of the Inheritance Law is required 

Pristina – On 7 Mar. 2019 the Association of Women “Aureola”, a member organization of Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN), held a discussion on “Advancing the Law of Inheritance with purpose to guaranteeing economic stability of family inheritance for female heirs”. This discussion took place within the initiative “Advancement of the Heritage Law“. 

This debate is the second out of four planned to be held throughout the initiative, and it was attended by representatives from civil society and institutions.  

Sanije Grajçevci, Director of the “Aureola”, stated that they seek the removal or suspension of the Article 130 of the Law of Inheritance which will have an impact in women’s economic empowerment.  

Recommendations will be prepared after the cycle of debates get finalized, and then these recommendations will be sent to the relevant government commissions, as well as to all members of Parliament.  

This initiative was supported by the KWN Kosovo Women’s Fund and funded by the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).
