Open Call for Consulting Service

Open Call for Consulting Service

4 July 2023

July 2023

OPEN CALL FOR CONSULTANCY SERVICES:

A key challenge in relation to EU membership negotiations is the focus on political aspects, with preparation and institutional stability seen as less important by government institutions and other stakeholders.

Therefore, PIPS together with the FOL Movement, as implementers of this project supported by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Kosovo within the MATRA program, made an open call for consultancy services.

As part of the call, a public opinion poll will be drawn up for Kosovo's EU membership negotiations, along with the methodology that will be used when measuring the opinion poll.

This survey is done with the aim of understanding the degree to which citizens are informed about what are the next steps of Kosovo towards EU membership, and to understand the perceptions and opinions of citizens regarding Kosovo's progress so far in this process.

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

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

24 May 2023

Maj 2023

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.
