BEING LGBTI IN EASTERN EUROPE: ALBANIA COUNTRY REPORT

Original Title: 
BEING LGBTI IN EASTERN EUROPE: ALBANIA COUNTRY REPORT
Resource Type: 
Report

This Albania Country Report provides an overview of the rights of LGBTI people in Albania. It presents a participatory review and analysis of the impacts of the legal, institutional, policy, social, cultural and economic environment on LGBTI people. The report provides evidence relating to Albania's experience in promoting and protecting the rights of LGBTI people in education, employment, health, the family, media and politics. It forms part of a sub-regional project, “Being LGBTI in Eastern Europe” (BLEE).

The report is based on data from several sources. These include: a national round table; community dialogues, interviews, field visits, and focus groups with LGBTI people and CSOs; discussions with relevant stakeholders and LGBTI organizations; a national validation workshop on the country report and a desk review of the published literature.

The report highlights priority issues related to human rights and contributes to the development of advocacy approaches by convening dialogue between national decision-makers and LGBTI organizations. It outlines steps towards LGBTI-inclusive development work for UNDP and other actors in the UN system, as well as for development partners.

The report examines LGBTI people's experiences from a human rights and development perspective, and contextualizes this against the backdrop of civil society capacity and government commitments. The report provides analysis of national laws and policies on the human rights of LGBTI people; identities achievements and gaps; and recommends measures for improvements.
