Kosovo Debate on European Issues, 2009


EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy, 2009

Implementing organisation: EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy

Partner organisation: Kosovo Civil Society Foundation (KCSF)

Project aims:

  • To create a framework for expert debate on problems connected with the accession of Kosovo to the EU by building a platform for formulation of policy recommendations in areas key for the Kosovar society and belonging to European standards;
  • To increase the capacity to conduct such a debate, formulate problems and solutions to them using the Czech expertise, to facilitate know-how and best practices transfer from the Czech Republic to Kosovo
  • To strengthen domestic debate in Kosovo on key issues which will contribute to local ownership of ideas and policy solutions;
  • To advocate proposed solutions by transposing the outcomes of expert debate to political decisions

These aims were achieved through following activities:

  • Two-day training in Kosovo for NGO representatives on policy cycle and policy papers writing
  • Creation of three working groups in three public policy areas: rule of law, economic reforms and education
  • Elaboration of eight policy briefs in these three areas, published in the final printed volume
  • Three public seminars with NGOs, public authorities' representatives, political actors and media
  • Final conference on the Czech EU accession process as a source of possible inspiration for Kosovo
