LETTER TO EUROPEAN LEADERS GATHERING IN REYKJAVIK ON 16 AND 17 MAY FOR THE 4th COUNCIL OF EUROPE SUMMIT

MAY 2023

As the 4th Council of Europe Summit is about to take place in Reykjavik on the 16th and 17th of May, PIPS, along with the Association of Schools of Political Studies of the Council of Europe, have addressed an open letter to the head of states of the Council of Europe members to express our concern over increasing harassment of NGOs, journalists, lawyers, academics, human rights defenders, whistleblowers, and other dissenting voices, aimed at curbing political pluralism and silencing dissent.

The association reminds European leaders of their obligation to accept the principles of the rule of law and the enjoyment of human rights and fundamental freedoms within their jurisdictions.

The letter also calls for action to be taken to pressure governments to ratify and implement the Istanbul Convention on violence against women, to implement rulings of the European Court of Human Rights, and to uphold the principles enshrined in the Convention. The association emphasizes the right to have rights, which includes the poor, the vulnerable, migrants, refugees, and stateless persons. The letter concludes by calling on European leaders to be steadfast in implementing the principles and values for which the Council of Europe stands.

-The Association of Schools of Political Studies was set up in 2008 to enhance the role of political studies in the management of the Council of Europe's program and strengthen links between the schools.

Parandalimi dhe luftimi i korrupsionit përmes përmirësimit të sistemit të llogaridhënies, profesionalizmit dhe pavarësisë së sistemit të drejtësisë

Dokumenti i përgatitur nga grupi i Shkollës Politike (Gjenerata e 21-të) nënvizon një sfidë të vazhdueshme brenda sistemit gjyqësor dhe prokurorial të Kosovës, duke theksuar në mënyrë specifike mangësitë që mund ti ketë procesi i vlerësimit të performancës për gjyqtarët dhe prokurorët.

Për të adresuar këto çështje, dokumenti përshkruan objektivat për të përmirësuar cilësinë e punës midis gjyqtarëve dhe prokurorëve, duke promovuar transparencën, llogaridhënien dhe profesionalizmin.
