Real Estate in Kosovo - Opening the market with the EU 31 May 20210

Real Estate in Kosovo - Opening the market with the EU

Foreigners in Kosovo can only own real estate if they acquire ownership through inheritance. Given Kosovo's aim to join the European Union(EU), this situation is changing. The Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA) between Kosovo and the EU foresees the opening of the Kosovo real estate market to citizens and companies of EU member states.

Despite the clear provisions of the SAA in this regard, in practice this market opening is challenged in principle by the current legal framework for property rights and their implementation in Kosovo.

This study analyzes the legal framework, challenges and expected impact, and provides recommendations.
A brief discussion on the relevance of Title II of the SAA and the Political Dialogue between Kosovo and the European Union (EU) 12 May 20210

A brief discussion on the relevance of Title II of the SAA and the Political Dialogue between Kosovo and the European Union (EU)

"A brief discussion on the relevance of Title II of the SAA and the Political Dialogue between Kosovo and the European Union (EU)" argues the importance of utilizing Title II for Political Dialogue for Kosovo to achieve EU support in consolidating the external dimensions through cooperation with the EU, on the fifth anniversary of the entry into force of the Stabilization and Association Agreement.

Beyond the importance that is given to the dialogue on the normalization of Kosovo-Serbia relations in Title II, this chapter offers untapped potential for other forms of cooperation between Kosovo and the EU.

This publication analyzes Kosovo's setbacks in utilizing this potential and provides recommendations on how to proceed in future endeavors.

This publication is published in the framework of the PIPS Foreign Policy Analysis Program (FPAP). The publication was produced with the support of the Kosovo Civil Society Foundation.
Reform of the inspection system in Kosovo 15 April 20210

Reform of the inspection system in Kosovo

The business environment in Kosovo is overseen by over 30 inspectorates, which are established from year to year in a disorganized manner and without unique, coherent and well-coordinated policies.

The SAA requires Kosovo to implement with priority the reforms for approximation with the EU market, within three to five years of its implementation. The reform of the inspections system has been part of the common political priorities for the implementation of the SAA, through the European Reform Agenda (ERA), since November 2016, when the ERA was approved by the Government.

This policy analysis addresses this reform in three aspects. First, the current situation regarding this reform is described. Second, the shortcomings and challenges that its implementation may face are identified. Third, concrete proposals are given.
