Kosovo Human Development Report 201214 May 2012
Private Sector and Employment addresses one of Kosovo’s deepest post-conﬂict challenges – the capacity of the economy to provide jobs and growth. The desire for decent work is one of the most basic of all human needs. To the average Kosovan family, decent work means more nutritious food on the table, a better house to live in, better health and more freedoms. Beyond these essentials, it means dignity and empowerment, the chance to build and share knowledge, to become more capable and pass those capabilities on to others –particularly children. A new survey on Enterprise Barriers was prepared and conducted with a representative sample of 600 business owners across the reach of Kosovo, and results tested through focus groups with wider audiences.
