Enhancing gender mainstreaming of the judicial reform in Montenegro

Achieving gender equality is one of the main aims of Council of Europe and European Union. The European Union/Council of Europe’s commitment towards gender equality is also strongly reflected in the implementation of the joint action "Accountability and professionalism of the judicial system in Montenegro".

To this aim, a baseline action-specific Gender Analysis was produced in 2020 to identify key obstacles to gender equality and gender parity in judicial system of Montenegro and outline concrete recommendations and indicators for gender mainstreaming of the action. Based on the results of the Analysis, a more in-depth gender research will be commenced to map gender gaps and propose measure to close those gaps.

The research will look into career development paths, eventual gender wage gaps for men and women in judicial staff and potential/existing gender bias and will also provide inputs for gender mainstreaming of relevant judicial policies in line with Council of Europe Gender Equality Strategy 2018-2023.

By adopting a gender mainstreaming approach, the action continues to promote gender equality mechanisms, to ensure that implemented initiatives are gender-sensitive and result in gender mainstreamed policy-making and resource allocation, and ultimately contribute to better outcomes for both men and women in the judicial system of Montenegro.

The action "Accountability and professionalism of the judicial system in Montenegro" is a part of the joint European Union/Council of Europe programme “Horizontal Facility for the Western Balkans and Turkey 2019-2022”.
