        • The report is divided into five sections and includes analysis of documents (reviews of reports, articles and regulations relating to the introduction of gender mainstreaming in security sector reform) and analysis of specific data on the gender structure of employees in the security institutions.

          Additional information was gathered during interviews with various actors involved in the implementation of gender mainstreaming policies and security sector reform, as well as with representatives of civil society and international organizations. The first findings were confirmed during a series of consultations carried out at the local level. The consultations were organized in order for actors, dealing with gender and security issues at the local and provincial level, to formulate recommendations for the promotion of gender equality and security sector reform, seen from the perspective of local communities.

          Each section of the report is accompanied by specific and concrete recommendations aimed at various stakeholders in the areas of gender equality and security, in order to overcome existing shortcomings in the implementation of gender mainstreaming in security sector governance.

          1) Analysis of security sector reform and gender mainstreaming in Serbia. This section briefly presents the political and social context in which the security sector reform and the introduction of gender equality policies took place, since the fall of the Milošović’ regime until today.

          2) Gender and security mechanisms. The second part presents the existing legal and institutional framework for introduction of gender mainstreaming policies and highlights its importance for the implementation of security sector reform. This section also analyzes the cooperation of different gender and security institutions at different levels, as well as cooperation between different gender and between different security institutions.

          3) Cooperation between civil society organisations and security sector. This section of the report is devoted to the role that civil society organizations have played in empowering women and promoting gender equality. It emphasizes the positive examples of cooperation between women's organizations and state institutions, but also deficiencies in their communication and cooperation.

          4) Representation of women in the security sector. Representation of women in security institutions, their position and the challenges they face during their career are explored in the fourth section of the report. Although in recent years the number of women employed in security institutions increased, the gender perspective is still not integrated into the internal procedures and policies for employment, retention and career development, which would enhance the chances of women who are already employed in them.

          5) Addressing security concerns of women and men. The last part of the report discusses how security institutions treat women as beneficiaries of the system of justice and security. The focus is on security sector approach to gender-based violence, especially to domestic violence and human trafficking.
