Summary

On 8 September, in co-operation with the OSCE Mission to Kosovo, the Mission organized a roundtable in Podgorica to promote positive gender mainstreaming practices in the security sector. During the event, officials from the Association of Kosovo Police Women shared their experiences with 30 national gender officers working in the area of security within the parliament, line ministries, police, customs, and the Agency for National Security. Emphasizing how gender diversity can increase effectiveness in the promotion of peace and security, discussions centred on women’s empowerment in the security sector, with a focus on management and decision making positions, the formation of police women’s associations, and awareness raising on women’s representation in the police.
