  • Gender Parity and Decision-Making in the Serbian Public Administraton

    The lack of gender parity in managerial positions in both the private and public sectors in almost all European countries indicates the persistence of a range of structural, legal, and social barriers which continue to negatively affect women’s promotion and participation in positions of power.

    It is 2017 and gender inequality still abounds even in the most developed societies with robust policies aimed at achieving gender parity. In the context of the Serbian public administration, women make up 30% of highest managerial positions within the Serbian ministries, although in the total civil service they comprise as much as 62.24%. The lack of gender parity in managerial positions in both the private and public sectors in almost all European countries indicates the persistence of a range of structural, legal, and social barriers which continue to negatively affect women’s promotion and participation in positions of power. This new CEP Policy Brief aims to delve further into the importance of this issue, the reasons behind the lack of parity, the present situation in Serbia, and possible policy responses necessary to address the current inequality.
