Kosovo’s application for membership at the Council of Europe (CoE): Arduous path ahead

January 2023

Since the declaration of independence in 2008, Kosovo has managed to become a member of several multilateral organizations, including the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, as well as the Development Bank of the Council of Europe in 2013 and the Venice Commission in 2014. By submitting the request for membership to the Council of Europe on May 12, 2022, Kosovo started an important political process, thus opening a new chapter. There seems to be a long and difficult process involved in joining the Council of Europe. This brief policy note, therefore, provides an overview of Kosovo's application to the Council of Europe and briefly elaborates on Kosovo's strategy and multilateral relations with the Council of Europe. Further, the content of the paper delves into the legal and political dimensions attached to this process, as well as possible scenarios for the way forward.

Thirrje për 2 (dy) ekspertë në projektin 'Të drejtat për komunitetet rurale' 24 May 20230

Thirrje për 2 (dy) ekspertë në projektin 'Të drejtat për komunitetet rurale'

Komunitetet e largëta rurale dhe malore në Kosovë përballen me sfida të mëdha në qasjen në informata për të drejtat e tyre ligjore dhe në kërkimin e drejtësisë. Ka disa faktorë që kontribuojnë në këtë situatë, si infrastruktura e dobët, niveli i ulët i arsimit dhe mungesa e burimeve ligjore. Kushtetuta e Republikës së Kosovës garanton një gamë të gjerë të dispozitave për të drejtat e njeriut, por këto ligje shpesh shkelen dhe zbatimi i tyre është joadekuat.

Andaj PIPS, si implementues i këtij projekti të mbështetur nga Community Development Fund (CDF) dhe Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS), bënë thirrje për 2 (dy) ekspertë. Ekspertët pritet që të:

*Zhvillojnë sesione informative, prezantime dhe konsultime mbi tema të ndryshme të të drejtave të njeriut si diskriminimi, dhuna dhe qasja në drejtësi.

*Ofrojnë këshilla dhe mbështetje për ata që kanë përjetuar një dhunë të tillë.
