Gender Equality and Discrimination in Appointed Local Government Bodies

Authors/editor(s): Commissioner for Protection from Discrimination in Albania

There is little information about the women representation in the appointed local government bodies in Albania. This study is the first institutional approach to this phenomenon and will for the first time produce some statistics regarding the ratio of representation of women in the appointed local government bodies. The aim of this study is to portray a panorama, of the gender configuration in the composition of the appointed local government bodies and on the basis of the analysis of this statistic, to make possible recommendations for decision-making and policy-making bodies.
