Gender Mainstreaming in EULEX

EULEX is fully committed to the inclusion of a gender perspective in all of its activities, both within the Mission as well as in its work with Kosovo institutions and society. EULEX also ensures that its regulations and activities are designed in compliance with internationally recognized gender-equality standards. While the mission management carries the overall responsibility for gender mainstreaming, all staff have a responsibility to take a gender perspective into account in their duties.

The advisor provides inputs on mission documents and reports, relevant legislation and supports implementation mechanisms regarding gender equality and women’s rights in the area of Rule of Law. Additionally the advisor performs research and analyses, design and deliver gender trainings, and liaise with Kosovo institutions, civil society organizations and international organizations.  The Gender Advisor is assisted by the Gender Focal Points.
