This campaign is part of the the Civil Society Strengthening Platform (CSSP) which is part of the three-year programme, ‘Implementing Norms, Changing Minds’, funded by the European Commission and UN Women, which aims at ending gender-based discrimination and violence against women in the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo*, North Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia) and Turkey, with a particular focus on the most disadvantaged groups of women. The goal of the CSSP is to strengthen women’s voices and agency, including that of women’s organizations working with and representing women from disadvantaged marginalized groups, at a regional level.
