Since 2005, UN Women (formerly UNIFEM) has been supporting strengthening democratic governance, and promoting and protecting women’s human rights in Kosovo and the Western Balkans through implementation of UNSCR 1325. Building on the previous projects ‘Women Building Peace and Human Security in the Western Balkans’ and Advancing Implementation of UN SCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security in the Western Balkans’ UN Women will continue its support to RWL SEE with a primary focus to promote better understanding between women from across the region of Southeastern Europe, with an emphasis on Kosovo and Serbia.  
Under a series of initiatives on Women, Peace and Security, UN Women supported the establishment of the Regional Women’s Lobby for Peace, Security and Justice in Southeast Europe  (RWL SEE) in 2006 as a response to the growing awareness of the marginalization of women from decision-making on peace and security and concerns over recent security and stability in the region. RWL SEE is composed of women political leaders and activists in the Western Balkans including Kosovo that share a commitment to achieve full recovery from the devastation of the wars of the 1990s through advancement of justice and reconciliation leading to lasting peace, security and prosperity for future generations. Moreover, RWL SEE has organized a series of interethnic dialogue roundtables between women Members of Parliament (MPs) from Kosovo and Serbia, thus promoting issues of common concern for women that transcend ethnicity and nationality. RWL SEE is now registered as an independent NGO and is rapidly growing as an important regional women’s network for women’s security and empowerment at the regional and global level (see  for more information on RWL SEE).
Building on results achieved through previous interventions and in order to not lose momentum but rather to build and expand upon the achievements reached so far, UN Women jointly with RWL SEE have agreed to continue collaboration on the following one year project “Women’s political empowerment, participation in and contribution to peace and security processes in the Western Balkans" funded by Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Sweden, which is within the overall framework of the RWL SEE Strategic Plan for 2015-2018.
