Month: November 2018


Women’s Rights Center launched an online survey during November on discrimination at workplace. Survey is a part of an overall research which is conducted within the project Furthering women’s labour rights, which will last for 4 years and is financially supported by the European Union.

Besides the survey, WRC has done a thorough legal analysis of labour legislation in Montenegro and it’s harmonization with international legislation, our research team has conducted interviews with representatives of various institutions such as police, prosecution, courts etc., as well as interviews with citizens who previously, through the online survey, accepted to be further interviewed.

Legal analysis, results from the survey and interviews will be part of the report to be completed in February 2019. Once finished and translated, WRC will organize a public presentation of the findings and the report, and also broadly disseminate the collected results.


On November 23rd, WRC started a two-day expert gathering for representatives of judiciary about the practical implementation of the UN Convention on Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). CEDAW Convention is the most important international instrument for protection of women’s human rights. Two-day training was organized in cooperation with Centre for Training in Judiciary and State Prosecution, financially supported by European Commission, UN Women, UNDP and Ministry for human and minority rights. In this way, we contribute to implementing recommendations that CEDAW Committee sent to Montenegro, and refer to raising capacities of judiciary and implementing the Convention in practice. Trainers were: Vanja Macanović, Autonomous women center and Maja Raičević, Women’s Rights Center.
