The end of the year also marks the conclusion of the year-round program of the 2019 School for Political Studies. On 16 December, together with collaborators and alumni we held the closing ceremony for the 17th generation of School for Political Studies.
At the end of this one-year commitment within our program, we held a concluding panel on what awaits Kosovo in 2020, in light of EU political developments, in the regional context and the new political reality within the country.
Upon being awarded the certificates, participants of this generation join the vast network of hundreds of alumni of Prishtina School for Political Studies.
We are happy to witness the successful completion of yet another generation of School for Political Studies, and are grateful for the many years of support from our partners – the Council of Europe and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.
