Democratic governance and peacebuilding


Kosovo strategic documents and the dialogue with the EU around Kosovo EU integration objectives point to the centrality of effective and equitable democratic governance in Kosovo. Improved efficiency of the central and local institutions and the battle against corruption are put forth as strategic priorities.

Our Goals

Complex public administration reforms have been implemented in the last seven years, and continuing improvements are made to improve the functioning of governing institutions at all levels, but the policy implementation and delivery of public services still has many weaknesses and the maturity of the legislature, of the judiciary and of democratic institutions requires further development. Significant disparities between the objectives of local authorities and their capacity to deliver, as well as the underdevelopment of civil society organizations to hold governments accountable and exercise effective representation and participation in policy processes need to be addressed in order to achieve inclusiveness and equitable access.more

Supporting Women's Empowerment

Women empowerment in decision making, advancing gender justice by promoting the protection of women right, and support to the implementation of the newly adopted domestic violence law will receive important emphasis
