Rationalization of executive agencies and regulators in Kosovo

June 2019

The reform for rationalization of executive agencies and regulators started in 2015, as part of the reform dialogue in the field of public administration between Kosovo and the European Union.
The policy framework for implementing the rationalization of executive agencies and regulators foresees its completion by the end of 2021. It is expected to affect over 60 institutions, most of which exercise executive functions. Although in terms of designations and formal status, they seem distinct, many of them have a fusion and duplication of competencies among themselves. The lack of clear lines of accountability and weaknesses in their oversight further undermine their functioning. This situation contributes to the lack of a functional public administration in Kosovo.
To contribute to the implementation of this reform, this policy analysis addresses this reform in two dimensions, the context and framework of this reform, and its implementation.
This analysis concludes with the main conclusions and a number of recommendations for the implementation of the reform.

Thirrje për 2 (dy) ekspertë në projektin 'Të drejtat për komunitetet rurale' 24 May 20230

Thirrje për 2 (dy) ekspertë në projektin 'Të drejtat për komunitetet rurale'

Komunitetet e largëta rurale dhe malore në Kosovë përballen me sfida të mëdha në qasjen në informata për të drejtat e tyre ligjore dhe në kërkimin e drejtësisë. Ka disa faktorë që kontribuojnë në këtë situatë, si infrastruktura e dobët, niveli i ulët i arsimit dhe mungesa e burimeve ligjore. Kushtetuta e Republikës së Kosovës garanton një gamë të gjerë të dispozitave për të drejtat e njeriut, por këto ligje shpesh shkelen dhe zbatimi i tyre është joadekuat.

Andaj PIPS, si implementues i këtij projekti të mbështetur nga Community Development Fund (CDF) dhe Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS), bënë thirrje për 2 (dy) ekspertë. Ekspertët pritet që të:

*Zhvillojnë sesione informative, prezantime dhe konsultime mbi tema të ndryshme të të drejtave të njeriut si diskriminimi, dhuna dhe qasja në drejtësi.

*Ofrojnë këshilla dhe mbështetje për ata që kanë përjetuar një dhunë të tillë.

LETTER TO EUROPEAN LEADERS GATHERING IN REYKJAVIK ON 16 AND 17 MAY FOR THE 4th COUNCIL OF EUROPE SUMMIT

As the 4th Council of Europe Summit is about to take place in Reykjavik on the 16th and 17th of May, PIPS, along with the Association of Schools of Political Studies of the Council of Europe, have addressed an open letter to the head of states of the Council of Europe members to express our concern over increasing harassment of NGOs, journalists, lawyers, academics, human rights defenders, whistleblowers, and other dissenting voices, aimed at curbing political pluralism and silencing dissent.

-The Association of Schools of Political Studies was set up in 2008 to enhance the role of political studies in the management of the Council of Europe's program and strengthen links between the schools.

Kosovo’s application for membership at the Council of Europe (CoE): Arduous path ahead

Since the declaration of independence in 2008, Kosovo has managed to become a member of several multilateral organizations, including the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, as well as the Development Bank of the Council of Europe in 2013 and the Venice Commission in 2014. By submitting the request for membership to the Council of Europe on May 12, 2022, Kosovo started an important political process, thus opening a new chapter. There seems to be a long and difficult process involved in joining the Council of Europe. This brief policy note, therefore, provides an overview of Kosovo's application to the Council of Europe and briefly elaborates on Kosovo's strategy and multilateral relations with the Council of Europe.
