Since 2003 the School of Politics has been implemented by the Pristina Institute for Political Studies with the support and under the auspices of the Council of Europe. The purpose of the program is to promote a new political culture for young leaders in line with the three key principles of the Council of Europe: democracy, rule of law and human rights. During one calendar year 30 participants from political parties, media, civil society, public administration have the opportunity to attend lectures with eminent local and international speakers. The program is currently implemented in 22 countries around the world and the graduates are certified by the Council of Europe and the Secretary General of this organization.

The educational purpose of the School can be described with the idea of strengthening democratic principles and practices. The curricula of the School of Politics modules include a variety of topics such as political theories, democratization, good governance, electoral process, political parties, foreign policy, EU enlargement policy and public communication. Due to its longevity and quality, the Prishtina School of Politics has become one of the central platforms of public debate among public actors in Kosovo. The program has proven to be a valuable experience for all individuals motivated to be involved in the positive change of Kosovar society through civic activism.

The participants are selected on merit based on their professional ability, taking into account other relevant political, geographical, social, ethnic and gender factors.

Prishtina School of Politics is part of the multilateral forums of the Council of Europe's School of Politics Network and the Association of School of Politics.

Schools Network was created by the Council of Europe in 2005 in order to provide a framework for the exchange of information, expertise and practices between the Schools. The network also provides a milieu in which regional and bilateral activities between two or more schools take place. Today Schools of Politics operate in Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus. Such a wide reach has necessarily increased the need for cooperation, therefore the network offers such opportunity. To find out more about the School Network download the following documen here.

Association of School of Political Studies of the Council of Europe was founded in 2008 by the Directors of Schools of Politics, with the aim of strengthening links, stimulating development and supporting the schools. Equipped with a legal framework, Schools now have a tool that allows the Network to communicate with its own voice.

The Association plays an important role in supporting School Alumni. The Association's website has become a major hub for communication and information for its members, and provides a platform for dialogue and exchange between school graduates and current participants.
