Albania: Violence against Women in the Family: "It's not her shame"
Thousands of women in Albania are at risk of violence from their husbands or their intimate partners. In this report, Amnesty International identifies the barriers which prevent women in gaining access to justice, including: the justification of violence as part of Albanian "tradition"; the failure of law enforcement officers to respond appropriately to women seeking assistance, and the failure of the legal system to recognize violence against women in the family as a criminal offence. Amnesty International calls for women who have suffered violence to be able to enforce their rights to protection, reparation and redress.
