Title: Gender equality in Kosovo's uniformed services : [presentation given August 24, 2012]
Author: Sylejmani, Arbenita
Abstract: This project addresses women’s participation and decision-making role in Kosovo’s three main uniformed services: the Kosovo Customs (KC), Kosovo Police (KP), and the Kosovo Security Force (KSF). There are currently small numbers of women in these three uniformed services, and even less in decision-making positions. This project has considered institutional mechanisms and ways to improve women’s participation in these institutions in order to empower their role in Kosovo society. It also includes analysis from data sources that were available for current women’s participation in these institutions ... This study did find a significant difference between female of KC, KP and those in KSF. Female officials from KC (80%) and KP (80%) agreed that promotion opportunities are discriminative. Contrary, female officials from KSF (80%) do not believe that opportunities for promotion in KSF are discriminative. The KC and KP have no policy for gender equality. The KSF have respective policy, but it is not implemented. Therefore, it is recommended that institutions of KC, KP, and KSF should develop and promote policy for enhancing women’s representation.
