Women in Politics II: Gender responsive policy-making at the local and national level

Published at: 25 Aug 2020

The new policy article on Women in Politics provides an in-depth analysis of the necessity for integrating gender mainstreaming as a cross-cutting characteristic in the change of policies. It highlights the need for gender budgeting in all areas and the participation of women in public consultations. The article provides clear recommendations that should be followed by institutions and political actors, for gender-mainstreaming to be standardized across public institutions.

The report is a result of a series of consultations organised by Balkans Group as part of the “Fostering the Women Caucus’ role through regional outreach & establishing their relationship with the media” project funded by the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) – an initiative of the Government of Canada”. The project aimed to further strengthen the Women Caucus’ impact and expand its reach throughout Kosovo by also liaising with women representatives at municipal levels. It also aimed at bringing women MPs and women municipal assembly members to work more closely with the media.
