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

29 June 2022

June 2022

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.

Maj 2022

Kur bota po kalonte krizën më të rëndë të shëndetit publik, vëmendja u kthye kah ndërmarrja e masave preventive.
Ky OP-ED shtjellon masat e ndërmarrura gjatë pandemisë në përpuethshmëri me të drejtat e njeriut dhe se si në raste të krizave publike si ajo e shkaktuar nga COVID-19, e drejta për jetë dhe e drejta për shëndet, racionalisht mbizotërojnë mbi të drejtat e tjera.

Ky artikull është shkruar në kuadër të projektit “Rritja e reagimit të institucioneve të Kosovës në
adresimin e pasojave socio-ekonomike dhe politike të COVID-19, përmes prodhimit të
rekomandimeve të politikave të bazuara në prova”, mbështetur nga Balkan Trust for Democracy,
Projekt Fondi Gjerman Marshall i Shteteve të Bashkuara dhe USAID.

Integration of Kosovo in the EU - RESULTS OF THE NATIONAL SURVEY 2023

Integration of Kosovo in the European Union: Perceptions of Kosovar Citizens is the next publication of PIPS, in cooperation with Lëvizja FOL, and with the support of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Kosovo.

The results of this research/survey sheds light on the perceptions of Kosovar citizens on a number of dimensions of the integration process in the EU. The survey offers interesting findings related to the impressions of Kosovars about the future of their state, the preconceived notion of the EU as an opportunity to improve institutions and the quality of daily life, as a 'promised future', the exact distance of which has not become completely clear.

The research was organized in 38 municipalities of Kosovo with 1200 respondents, of which 800 Albanians, 200 Serbs and 200 other minorities.
