Summary/Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to critically evaluate the representation of women in the security sector in Kosovo. Indeed democratization of the security sector requires significant inclusion of women. However, it is of crucial importance to evaluate progress in order for the reader to gain understanding of this matter. This paper aims to assess the quality of women’s involvement in the security sector from the following perspective: the quality of the legal framework; the trend of inclusion of women in the security sector; the treatment of women in the security sector; and in the end to draw conclusions about indicators highlighting the position of women in this sector.
