          • Public Procurement and Gender Equality: Its Impact on Women in the Security Sector in Serbia

          • How gender patterns differently affect the organization, implementation, and realization of public procurement as well as the consequences they produce is the main topic of the BCSP new analysis written by researcher Aurelija Djan. This paper takes as its focus public procurement in Serbia’s security sector in order to better understand the impact public procurement have on both women and men.

        • The goal of this analysis is to urge public policy makers as well as the wider academic and professional community to view the procurement processes from the perspective of social development as to specifically draw attention to the differing outcomes experienced by women and men in their interaction with security institutions.

          Therein, based on guidelines provided by experts in the field, this paper shall present examples of good practices, conclusions, and recommendations as to further develop the public procurement system in Serbia from a gender perspective.

          Gender equalityin public procurement processes in Serbia’s security institutions has not been duly respected and since women in the security sector have inadequate access to resources compared to men, this often puts women in an inferior position.

          Public procurements that do not achieve its intended purpose prevent these institutions, which have a mandate to ensure the safety of all citizens, from performing their jobs responsibly. If control and accountability is to be established in the public procurement system to a full extent, it iscentral to recognize the impact of public procurement on women and men and the effects they produce.

          This publication is part of BCSP project PRO-CURE Strengthening Civil Scrutiny of Public Procurement in the Security Sector, financed by the European Union under support to Civil Society Facility 2013.
