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.
