Seminar on Political Education young people from Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities

23 November 2021

We have concluded a very successful Seminar on Political Education together with 20 participants, young people from the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities, and 5 lecturers on political and legal sciences.

The seminar was piloted as a new format for young people from non-majority communities inspired by the School of Political Studies program. We had the pleasure to witness the vivacious energy of these young people to advocate for their communities' advancement, and the capacity of such a program to serve as a space for cooperation in defining joint interests and demands.

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.
