Factsheet: Current gender equality situation in Albania

The factsheet provides an overview of gender equality and women's empowerment outcome in Albania. The evidence and data shows what could be improved through gender-responsive family policies at national level and in the workplace.

These findings come from the "Analysis of Gender Responsive Family Friendly Policies in Albania" done as part of the regional project “Expanding Choices: Gender Responsive Family Policies for the Private Sector in the Western Balkans and Moldova” implemented by UNFPA and supported by the Austrian Development Cooperation. The analysis provides an overview of the current legal, economic and social context for gender responsive family friendly policies in Albania. It also identifies best practices from other countries in the region and provide recommendations that will help to create an enabling environment and expanding choices for women to fulfill their career and family and fertility aspirations.

The “Expanding Choices: Gender Responsive Family Policies for the Private Sector in the Western Balkans and Moldova” regional project, implemented by UNFPA and supported by the Austrian Development Cooperation, aims to expand choices for women so that they can fulfill their career, family and fertility aspirations. The project works on two specific outcomes: ensuring that women, men and children benefit from gender-responsive family policies and initiatives that are offered by private sector companies and ensuring that women, men, and children benefit from national gender-responsive family policies that are promoted by governments.
