Women and Men in Albania, 2018
“Women and Men in Albania” is the latest publication of INSTAT, supported by UN Women and funded by the Austrian Development Agency, through which the Albanian reality comes into view regarding population, health, education and decision making, bringing into focus gender equality. Present at the conference with the same title were Deputy Prime Minister, Mrs. Senida Mesi, Mr. Brian Williams, UN Permanent Coordinator in Albania, and Mr. Heinz Habertheuer, representative of the Austrian Development Agency in Albania. INSTAT General Director, Mrs. Delina Ibrahimaj, emphasized the importance that this publication has for state institutions, businesses and the population.
The publication contains important evidence for policymakers and decision-makers working on gender issues and includes an ever-increasing range of gender statistics in Albania. "Of the various innovations, from this publication we can mention the inclusion of domestic movements for men and women in the population chapter, as well as some data on Albanian families with gender analysis," said Ibrahimaj. While, UN Permanent Coordinator in Albania, Mr. Brian Williams, said that UN Women's support to INSTAT over this issue is of particular importance, addressing goal number 5 of the global Sustainable Development Goals, the achievement of gender equality and the empowerment of all women and girls.
