"Women’s right to property is a complicated issue in Albania. Although the Albanian civil and family law recognize women’s equal right to land and property, only a small percentage of women—8 per cent—own land, because the laws are not implemented and women continue to be marginalized in matters of inheritance. When it comes to informal settlements, properties are often registered under the name of the 'head of household'—a role reserved for men, effectively leaving women out. Women also lack information and awareness about their property rights and justice sector professionals often look the other way, or are equally misinformed" (para 5).
