ESE Association for Emancipation, Solidarity and Equality of Women, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia

Skopje, Macedonia
Joined June 2016
Presence in: Macedonia
Focus: Education, Gender-based violence, Health, Housing & Sanitation

ESE develops and assists the women’s and civic leadership for development and implementation of human rights and social justice in our society.
ESE is driven by its dedication towards solution of problems. By promoting and improving the human rights, we improve the social and economic justice, thus considering that human rights are an indivisible set of standards to be enjoyed by everyone. We are especially dedicated to the work in the area of promotion and improvement of health and women’s human rights. Therefore, we focus on two objectives – meet the urgent needs of citizens, in particular the vulnerable groups of citizens, and influence the creation of sustainable, long-termed changes. We do more than mere documentation, reporting and condemning the inflicted injustice. We provide legal and paralegal assistance, and this is how we enable the citizens to realize their rights and change their living conditions. Moreover, we advocate for changing the legislation and policies that influence the implementation of health and women’s human rights. We advocate both on national and international level. We prepare and submit “shadow reports” and other types of documents for implementation of international documents about human rights in front of responsible international bodies.

My educational background as graduated lawyer was the foundation for my professional engagement in ESE and work on the field of promotion of human rights and gender equality. I believe that legal empowerment can contribute for improving access to justice and realization of human rights of vulnerable groups of people. In this regard, I’m engaged on monitoring human rights and developing and implementing different legal aid modalities for women who suffered domestic violence, such as the traditional free legal aid and virtual legal aid, as well as cost effective models for legal empowerment of different vulnerable communities, such as the paralegal assistance and support. In addition, my expertise incorporates capacity building of practitioners from institutions and judiciary, as well as thematic human rights researches and analysis related to access to justice, gender equality and legal empowerment.
My expectation from the network is to meet colleagues from other countries, share experience with them, learn more about their work and discuss the opportunities for mutual cooperation in the future.
