Prenatal sex selection caused by a preference for male offspring has led to an increasing imbalance of the birth outcome between girls and boys in numerous regions across the globe, including certain countries of Southeastern Europe and the Southern Caucasus. Due to its consequences, sex selection is also of concern to international organizations. Demography, reproductive health, gender equality, and human rights constitute the main areas of this concern. This paper sheds light on the current situation in the region and discusses the role of international organizations. It also explains why and how international organizations are dealing with the matter. The research is based on a mix of methods, including a document analysis and observations at international conferences.
