This report contains a review of regional policies and practices in the Balkan region which recognize the actual shift in contextualization of gender issues as exclusively women issues. This means that gender issues are also now being considered men issues as well, as shown in the recognition of responsible fatherhood, which could serve as a roadmap for wide promotion of gender equality as the responsibility of society as a whole, and not simply as a women issue.
This report is designed to highlight findings and recommendations from the World Fathers Report, launched in June 2015, and highlight existing data and policies from South Eastern Europe and the Balkans. As a part of the process CARE International conducted a policy review of the region, interviewed focus groups with fathers, and engaged policy makers, researchers and NGO professionals to develop key policy recommendations.
