Seminar on Political Education young people from Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities

23 November 2021

We have concluded a very successful Seminar on Political Education together with 20 participants, young people from the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities, and 5 lecturers on political and legal sciences.

The seminar was piloted as a new format for young people from non-majority communities inspired by the School of Political Studies program. We had the pleasure to witness the vivacious energy of these young people to advocate for their communities' advancement, and the capacity of such a program to serve as a space for cooperation in defining joint interests and demands.

Disinformation in the Western Balkan countries and the necessity for a firm response 15 November 20210

Disinformation in the Western Balkan countries and the necessity for a firm response

In our latest paper, PIPS analyzed Kosovo's approach and its role in the global fight against misinformation. Similar to other parts of the globe, in recent years the Western Balkans has seen an increase in disinformation and hybrid wars.

In the Western Balkans, the main purposes of fake news include, among other things, undermining the legitimacy and sovereignty of Kosovo's statehood, changing the narratives of war and war crimes, and undermining the West's credibility regarding state-building in Kosovo. News about Kosovo, in addition to being a dominant topic in the Serbian media, is often the subject of inaccurate reporting. Narratives spread by biased media also focus on weakening support for Euro-Atlantic institutions.

Such developments are an obstacle to regional integration and cooperation, which is why in this policy analysis PIPS has listed opportunities and recommendations for the government of Kosovo and the EU to address this phenomenon.
The beginning of an ERA! 15 October 20210

The beginning of an ERA!

The European Union and Kosovo agreed to start the second phase of the European Reform Agenda (ERA II) in order to continue the implementation of the SAA. As a result, the Hoti government approved the ERA II priorities on 19 October 2020. After consultations with CSOs, implementing institutions and the European Commission, the two-year action plan for ERA II was initially approved in principle by the Ministerial Council for European Integration. In May 2021 and was subsequently approved by the new Kurti government on 11 August.

Given the importance that ERA II now has on the path to EU integration, it is critical to overcome the previously experienced obstacles, to avoid falling into the same traps and experiencing the same delays. Prishtina Institute for Political Studies presents an overview of the implementation of ERA 1 and recommendations which can improve the overall implementation of ERA II in this publication.
Kosova as a rational actor in international society - The case of countering violent extremism 01 October 20210

Kosova as a rational actor in international society - The case of countering violent extremism

Is Kosovo a rational actor and a responsible member of the international democratic community?

In the latest paper, PIPS analyzed Kosovo's approach and role in the global fight against violent extremism.

The publication sheds light on examples and cases that show that:
In the global fight against violent extremism, Kosovo has demonstrated itself as a rational actor, taking responsibility for the repatriation and reintegration of its citizens from the areas;
Kosovo institutions have shown capacity to take on and fulfill global commitments that contribute to international peace and security;
Kosovo enjoys religious tolerance but international media reporting has created the impression that the country is ravaged by religious radicalization and extremism;
Furthermore, Kosovo has identified ethno-political radicalization as detrimental to its stability, peace and security.
Kosovo's membership in the Adriatic Charter: What are the odds? 28 September 20210

Kosovo's membership in the Adriatic Charter: What are the odds?

The Adriatic Charter (A-5) is one of the main regional security initiatives in the region of Southeast Europe, thus helping the member states' goal of achieving NATO and EU integration. The Adriatic Charter consists of Albania, Macedonia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Kosovo was the last country to gain observer status in the A-5 in 2012, and its bid to become a full member in 2014 failed due to Bosnia and Herzegovina's veto.

Therefore, what are the odds that Kosovo can join the Adriatic Charter?

Our latest publication explains the benefits, opportunities and obstacles for Kosovo's full membership in the Adriatic Charter.
