Civil Rights Defenders, organized for the second time the EUTH Advocacy Program, an initiative which is aiming to empower young human rights activists from the Western Balkans and Turkey on improving advocacy to EU institution’s.

As part of our EUTH 2021 programme to support youth’s research, policy writing and advocacy skills, seven activists and young leaders from the region compiled papers each outlining a human rights topic impacting their respective communities.

The policy papers were presented on an online roundtable event, to representatives from the European Parliament, Political Groups on the EP and fellow human rights activists and defenders. The online roundtable was hosted by Irena Joveva, a Slovenian MEP, member of Renew Europe in Parliament.
The topic of the Policy Paper from Albania was about the Challenges of the LGBTI+ cause, from lack of implementation, to rising violence and immigration, written by Kevin Jasini, project manager at Pro-LGBT.
You can access the document with all the policy papers, part of the 2nd edition of “What worries youth in Enlargement Countries” in the link below.
