Commentary:

The Montenegro NAP begins with an effective analysis of the country’s success in including women in the security forces. While they have yet to achieve gender parity in the military and police, the judiciary is heavily female. Still, the NAP recognizes that there is a long way to go to in terms of discrimination, uneven pay, and inclusion in the formal economic sector for women. It also highlights the problem of human trafficking, a specific issue for Montenegro as a common intermediary country. This NAP addresses these issues through a comprehensive plan with specific actionable items and a thorough monitoring and evaluation mechanism. It also aims to include women in both the domestic and international security sector as active participants in the military, police force, and judiciary, a positive step in achieving the WPS agenda.


Civil Society:

The Montenegro NAP does not mention civil society as an important partner in achieving the WPS agenda, focusing instead on governmental institutions as the main actor. Civil society was also not consulted in the drafting process of the NAP.
