Kosovo Human Development Report 2006

Youth, a new generation for a new Kosovo - has for focus the young people of Kosovo. It considers the problems that members of this important population group face, hopeful signs for their brighter future, and their overall position in society. The report analyses problems and opportunities from a human development standpoint. It seeks to achieve that goal by examining the role of youth in the development processes in Kosovo, including issues regarding education, employment, decision-making, civil cohesion, and participation in society as a whole. The report urges public institutions and authorities to establish strong relations with young people so their unique concerns are heard and responded to. It also includes recommendations on how to increase their inclusion in monitoring and decision-making processes as well as in the implementation of government policies. The report is based on analysis of quantitative and qualitative data obtained from numerous sources, but it also relied on a participatory approach for data collection. This consisted of conducting a survey among 1,200 individuals aged 15 to 29 as well as nine focus group discussions with different stakeholders.
