WILPF Albania joined WILPF as a National Group in 1996 and became a National Section the following year. The Group was founded against the backdrop of the social transition of the 1990s, when the hardships of a developing society outlined the role of women in the realisation of freedom, equality, and peace. It was in this context that a group of women activists decided to join WILPF in order to strengthen women’s participation within peace processes, and challenge the patriarchal structure of power in Albania.
Over the years, WILPF Albania has focused its efforts on disarmament, trauma facility, and the promotion of human rights in the Albanian post-conflict context. WILPF Albania is also present in contexts where women face particular challenges, such as rural areas and refugee camps. The Section has also worked on a project on trauma facility for women and girl refugees from Kosovo while also carrying out activities for peace education.
