Introduction

The present publication is part of the project "Monitoring and reporting under CED AW in the Balkan countries" and is the result of a joint NGO reporting process under CED AW from the SEE region. This first attempt is non conditioned and non provoked by the producing and presenting of the respective governmental reports. It makes it a unique effort initiated and largely supported by the DanishCcentre for Human Rights..

Due to the serious political upheavals and deep economic restructuring to free market economy, as well as to the wars and conflict situations endured, the region has been very often marginalized during the last 12 years. The aim of the report is to make the effort and the influence on the CED AW Committee more concerted, but also to give more visibility to the region and to women from the region. The report covers the implementation of the Convention in countries with large diversity, different status in respect of CED AW - some of them ratified CED AW in the early 80 ies, others - much later in the 90-ies, or took over as independent states. The compilation includes for the first time the experience of presenting an independent NGO report from the Republic of Montenegro. The fact that many Balkan countries are to report in late 2002 and 2003, others have reports overdue, will mobilise both governmental and non-governmental initiatives in the near future. It will encourage alternative reporting by NGOs in the region, which is good practice in Croatia and Bulgaria.

The strategic position of the region made out of SEE the arena of global interests which led to the establishment of several international intergovernmental organisations concerned with the development of SEE. Due to the need to tackle the problems of military and ethnic conflicts and the hardships of the political and economic transition, the governments of the region overlooked the impact of these processes on the rights of their citizens, and, more specifically, on women, which affected the implementation of CED AW. The present report is a good opportunity to remind the states about their commitments and to call for full respect of the women's rights. Because, whatever the outcome of the work of oganisations such as the Stability Pact is, the main direction of development for each country in the region is further respect of the international instruments and the acceding to the EU principles and policies by achieving stable economic development and respect of human rights standards. In this process, the full participation and contribution of women of this region in shaping the decisions at all levels is crucial.
