In accordance with EU commitments, ideally all chapters of Country Reports should be gender mainstreamed, including Chapter 19: Social Policy and Employment. A coalition of women’s rights groups working to address gender-based discrimination related to labour in the Western
Balkans (WB) has analysed the 2021 European Union (EU) Country Reports from a gender perspective, focusing on Chapter 19. The analysis draws from evidence-based research conducted by the partners in 2021. This work has been supported by the EU and co-funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency within the Action Empowering CSOs in Combatting Discrimination and Furthering Women’s Labour Rights.
