The Diana Kastrati Case: Violence Against Women and Kosovar Justice

Violence against women is a human rights violation, a consequence of the discrimination against women, in law and also in practice, and of the persisting inequalities between men and women. Up to 70% of women and girls experience physical or sexual violence from men in their lifetime. Domestic violence also remains one of the most prevalent forms of violence against women in Kosovo. As 46% of women living in Kosovo cited evidence of domestic violence in their neighbourhood, and 12% had witnessed a husband beating his spouse.2 However, more than half of the women suffering it did not report to the police.
