Kosovo Human Development Report 200830 Apr 2009
Civil Society and Development - brings together eleven authors for a multifaceted look at civil society’s place on Kosovo’s development agenda. It also draws on the Perceptions of Civil Society in Kosovo Survey. After a close look at what “civil society” and what “development,” mean, the report goes on to explore the history of civil society in Kosovo, its legal context, and ways it can influence public policy. Next, it looks at civil society through the eyes of the government and the general public, before discussing ways that CSOs can effectively work together with the government, with each other, and with the media, and ways they can influence and benefit from the European integration process. The final two chapters suggest improvements that CSOs should strive for and explore the potential of Community Driven Human Development in Kosovo.
