UN Women in Kosovo
UN Women has worked in Kosovo since 1999 and collaborates closely with institutions, government, civil society on building and advancing the gender equality machinery at the central and local levels to foster gender equality and women’s empowerment.
In recent years, UN Women in Kosovo has supported activities and programmes that focus on:
Ending violence against women
Advancing the women, peace and security agenda
UN Women supports the formulation of global, regional and local standards and norms for gender equality, supports Kosovo and civil society partners in implementing these standards, and coordinates the UN Kosovo Team’s efforts to deliver on its gender equality commitment. UN Women continuously contributes to the legislative framework and standards on gender equality and women’s empowerment, as a prerequisite for gender-sensitive public policies and services. UN Women also promotes women’s participation in conflict prevention and resolution, peace-building efforts as well as in decision-making processes, and women’s access to justice.
