GENDER EQUITY AT WORK IN ALBANIA: AN ANALYSIS FROM THE PERCEPTION OF THE ROLE AND INFLUENCE OF THE JURIDICAL FACTORS

Abstract

What could explain the upward-downward dynamics of Gender Equity at Work (GEW) observed in Albania? Unlike the claims of a considerable number of scholars who see and consider Gender Equity at Work as an issue of legal standards and practices, this paper analyzes the role of instruments, legislative laws, acts of the executive, and the judiciary decisions for the period 2006-2014, and it concludes that although legal factors have a positive impact in guaranteeing GEW, the latter and its upward-downward trends in Albania, more than with the role and influence of legal factors can and should be explained with the role and influence of social and cultural factors.

Keywords: Gender equity at work, the executive, the judiciary, the legislative
