Social problems related to gender and diversity are contested topics in Albania. However, the geographical distribution of these social problems and their diversity in the socio-geographical space of Albania appear as interesting issues. Among the main social problems are violence against women; domestic violence; trafficking of persons, in particular women’s trafficking; limited participation by women in decision making; limited access to employment; and limited access to educational services. In this paper, we present a data analysis on this geographical distribution, according to separate administrative divisions and influencing factors from the perspective of social geography. At the same time, we also present information about the evolution of these issues over certain periods, as well as trends for the future. A special issue is the presentation of suggestions for considering the risk management of such social problems in Albania. We also draw attention to the identification of social planning and social policies intended to reduce or solve these social problems in the socio-geographical space of Albania in the future.
