Kosovo towards Council of Europe Membership: Compliance of legislation with membership criteria

20 December 2014

December 2014

The purpose of this report will be to assess the level of compliance of Kosovo legislation with rule of law principles and human rights norms and standards enshrined in the Statute of the Council of Europe, as a condition for CoE membership. The report will start by describing briefly the formal procedures and criteria for membership in the CoE as well as assessment of the rule of law principles and human rights norms from the CoE perspective. Then it will assess the law-making process in Kosovo and how much the Kosovo legislation actually complies with the rule of law principles and human rights standards. It will also assess the legal mechanisms established to monitor the implementation and to ensure the effective enforcement of Kosovo legislation.

Kosovo's ability to fulfill the Council of Europe membership criteria: A comparative perspective

Kosovo's ability to fulfill the Council of Europe membership criteria: A comparative perspective

30 June 2014

June 2014

This policy report makes two interrelated arguments. First, it underscores the benefits of Kosovo's accession to the CoE, highlighting that membership is in the interest of both Kosovo's citizens but also in the interest of the CoE itself. Second, this policy report provides a comparative analysis of where Kosovo stands vis-à-vis other CoE and non-CoE members in terms of fulfilling the membership criteria. The report purposefully uses quantitative data from widely used and respected academic resources in order to make the claim that Kosovo does fulfill CoE membership criteria and, moreover, that in all of the key indicators for these criteria, Kosovo performs just as well as - and sometimes even better than - many recent CoE member states.

This study addresses the essence of state-society relations in Kosovo, that of political obligations. Combining an original analytical framework with rich empirical evidence, the study finds that political obligations are highly connected with the extent to which people's needs are met, their rights recognized and protected, and their agency and capabilities enabled.

Green groups and their role in the parliament’s green agenda 29 June 20220

Green groups and their role in the parliament’s green agenda

Once considered radical outsiders, the Greens are nowadays claiming an increasingly important role in mainstream politics, particularly in Europe.
Coupled with the urgency of climate change and the loss of support for traditional viewpoints, the Greens worldwide
have moved from single-issue environmental groups to inclusive political groups capable of developing and monitoring policies for key state institutions.

Thus, more and more people are supporting green policies, but who are the Greens, and what do they represent
in today’s politics? This Policy Brief aims to explain what the purpose of these green groups is and their role in the parliament's green agenda.
