Public Opinion in the Capital: Assessment of Satisfaction with Municipal Services

31 March 2022

March 2022

This policy analysis aims to assess the performance of the municipality of Pristina during the past term, based on a survey on public satisfaction with municipal services.

This would enable decision makers to understand the perceived performance of local institutions and plan and prioritize accordingly.

Considering the role that municipal governments play in providing public services to the population, identifying citizens' perceptions and areas of concern is of great importance to policy makers at the local level.

This report has been prepared as a result of a round table on youth, security and human development in Kosovo in December 2021 and four focus group discussions organized by HD and PIPS during February 2022, with participants from all communities in Kosovo. Participants included policy makers, government officials, activists
civil society, researchers and students. The report was prepared based on the contribution of the participants with the support of Dr. Mark Baskin, Leonora Kryeziu, Dr. Ramadan Ilazi and Ermal Boshnjaku.

The report shows that with modest intervention by the government, contact with members of non-majority communities in Kosovo
can significantly improve the daily lives of members of non-majority communities.

10 March 2022

March 2022

During the 21 months from ‘patient zero’ until mid-December 2021, during the pandemic, Kosovo has gone through multiple crises. The direct crisis is that of the public health.
In addition to the socio-economic crisis, which is the most serious crisis, during the pandemic Kosovo also went through the most serious political crisis in its history as a state, with political instability never seen before.

This policy analysis aims to analyze these and other developments in Kosovo during the pandemic, and its scope in three components: (in)-political stability and governance, the functioning of civil society organizations (CSOs) and media freedom.

In this context, it analyzes the consequences of the pandemic and their negative impact on these three components of state function.

Kosovo's prospects to join the WTO: A short evaluation of the decision-making routes

Kosovo's prospects to join the WTO: A short evaluation of the decision-making routes

23 February 2022

February 2022

Since 2018, Kosovo has not applied for membership in any major international organization. Although expanding its presence in international organizations has been one of the main goals of Kosovo's foreign policy in the post-independence period, membership in the Venice Commission in 2014 remains the last major multilateral accession for Kosovo.

The Government Program 2021-2025 includes several commitments for multilateral accession. One of the most important commitments is to apply for membership in the World Trade Organization.

This policy note discusses Kosovo's prospects of joining this organization, in light of the functions and importance that this multilateral body plays for the global economy today.
