About our work

Kosovo Banner Image

UN Women has worked in Kosovo since 1999 to foster gender equality and women’s empowerment and promote gender equality as central to the work of other UN agencies. UN Women contributed to the existing legislation on gender equality and women’s empowerment and to the establishment of gender mechanisms at local and central levels.

UN Women in Kosovo collaborates closely with Kosovo’s civil society, institutions and women’s groups. Its current projects and programmes focus on:

As part of its mandate, UN Women in Kosovo coordinates UN Kosovo Team efforts to deliver on its gender equality commitments. UN Women chairs the UN Gender Theme Group (now Results V Group), which provides guidance for mainstreaming gender into joint programmes. It promotes sharing of information, knowledge, and experiences on best practices for gender equality and women’s empowerment.

UN Women also chairs the multi-stakeholder Security and Gender Group (SGG), established in 2007, that coordinates gender issues in Kosovo. Its current members include civil society and women’s organizations, international organizations, embassies, and relevant Kosovo institutions. The SGG coordinates joint activities, issues joint advocacy letters and statements, and organizes public consultations. It coordinates joint campaigns such as 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence, which has included more than 100 activities each year throughout Kosovo.
