Analytica is glad to announce that the final product titled ”Migration and Empowerment of Women in the Western Balkans” as part of the RRPP funded project “Impact of migration on women empowerment in Western Balkan countries” implemented by Analytica together with its partner organizations the Albanian Centre for Social-Economic Research (ACSER) – Albania (the project leader organization) and the Center for Economic Development and Research (CEDAR) - Bosnia and Herzegovina, has been published by Lambert Academic Publishing (LAP). The book is authored by Edlira Narazani from ACSER, Sanela Basic from CEDAR and Ana Stojilovska from Analytica.
The book provides an analysis of the effect of migration on the empowerment of women in traditionally patriarchal societies in three Western Balkan countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Macedonia. The study focuses on the household unit and examines the positions of women with and without migration experience in their families. Research findings suggest that the effect of migration on the empowerment of women in three selected dimensions (socio-cultural, economic and domestic decision making) depends crucially on the personal ability of each individual woman to consider the migration experience in light of the complex interface of socio-economic factors in both home and host countries.
