WAVE Report highlights the importance of Civil Society Networks for ending violence against women
A new research report on increasing the accessibility of civil society networks, especially for women from minority and disadvantaged groups, has been released by WAVE, under the EU–UN Women regional programme, ‘Implementing Norms, Changing Minds’.
Produced as part of the Civil Society Strenghtening Platform to support the establishment and strengthening of regional platforms of civil society organizations, the report offers an overview of the current situation regarding the accessibility of networks in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey.
The study, prepared by the Gender Alliance Development Centre and the Albanian Women Empowerment Network, both WAVE members, shows that networks can be made more accessible to women from minorities and/or disadvantaged groups by either tailoring their access to services according to the needs of these groups or by partnering with organizations that specifically work with them.
