        • This report published by BCSP provides an independent review of the initial phase of government-led development and implementation of national policies for translation of UNSCR 1325 in the Western Balkan context. The study provides critical analysis on gender and security reform developments in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Macedonia and Serbia. 

          After the adoption of UNSCR 1325 on Women, Security and Peace, it took more than a decade for its instruments to be translated into the national policy agendas of the Western Balkan region. In July 2010, Bosnia and Herzegovina became the first country in the Balkan region to adopt an Action Plan for implementation of UNSCR 1325, followed by Serbia in December 2010 and Croatia in 2011. At the same time, Macedonia and Kosovo started developing action plans, resulting in Macedonia adopting an NAP at the end of 2012, while at the time of writing, Kosovo’s NAP was awaiting approval from the Prime Minister. Montenegro and Albania have initially chosen not to adopt a special document, but to integrate the resolution’s objectives in their national gender equality policies. However, Montenegro has now begun work on NAP development.

          In the first chapter of this study the topics are similarities and differences between the various (national) action plans and it provides an overview of the lessons learned in NAP/AP 1325 development and implementation in the region. Next chapter analyzes developments in regard to NAP/AP 1325 development and implementation in each country.

          The research was conducted by representatives of civil society organisations (CSOs) from the countries studied: the Institute for Democracy and Mediation (IDM) from Albania, Women to Women from BiH, the Kosovar Centre for Security Studies (KCSS) from Kosovo, the Centre for Research and Policy Making (CRPM) from Macedonia and the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (BCSP) from Serbia.

          This publication was produced in the framework of the project „Building Gender and Security Network in the Western Balkans“ supported by UN Women with funding from the Government of the Kingdom of Norway.
