Montenegro

The Kvinna till Kvinna Foundation has cooperated with women’s organisations in Montenegro since 1999.

Throughout the years, we have worked with organisations that provided support to Roma women, women subjected to gender-based violence and peacebuilding processes. The women’s movement is virtually alone when it comes to publicly discussing Montenegro’s role in the Balkan wars, which is a non-issue in Montenegrin society.

Women’s rights are low on the political agenda in Montenegro, but thanks to the persistent work of the women’s movement, men’s violence against women has started to get more attention.

With the current regional programme, Kvinna till Kvinna is supporting women’s rights and women’s equal participation in decision-making through the existing EU accession processes of Monetenegro.
