Parliamentary questions
12 June 2018
E-001610/2018
Answer given by Mr Hahn on behalf of the Commission

The Commission monitors and supports the efforts made by Albania to tackle violence against women through policy dialogue and targeted support, notably within the framework of the Stabilisation and Association Agreement. Among others, the EU supports several projects addressing domestic violence and strengthening gender equality mechanisms in the country.

In the strategy ‘A credible enlargement perspective for and enhanced EU engagement with the western Balkans’(1) adopted on 6 February 2018, the Commission recalled the importance of tackling domestic violence and ensuring equality between women and men.

In addition, in the 2018 Albania report(2), the Commission noted that domestic violence remains a serious concern and that more work is needed to ensure that women have access to justice.

The Commission expects from Albania to intensify work in addressing this important matter and will continue to raise it in relevant and appropriate fora with the Albanian authorities.
