Foreign Politics

The Foreign Policy Analysis Program (FPAP) was established by the Pristina Institute for Political Studies in 2014. The program aims to analyze and support Kosovo's Euro-Atlantic integration, producing studies on regional, European and global developments, as well as their effects on Kosovo's international position.

In a closer look, the program aims to reinforce the debate that serves Kosovo's full integration within the international system, to increase transparency in Kosovo's foreign policy towards citizens, to facilitate the policy-making process for decision-makers, and to enhance capacities of Kosovar diplomacy.

Through qualitative research the program is dedicated to serve as a bridge between Government officials, policymakers, citizens, diplomats, journalists, scholars, and others. The FPAP is the first and most prominent foreign policy research program in Kosovo.

Discussion on "Balkan regionalism 2021: SEFTA and Open Balkan"

Discussion on "Balkan regionalism 2021: SEFTA and Open Balkan"

15 September 2021

On 13 September PIPS held a closed discussion on "Balkan Regionalism 2021: SEFTA and Open Balkan" with stakeholders from the government, opposition and experts.

This event brought to the table the views of the parties on the SEFTA and Open Balkan agreements, and confronted the attitudes of key actors to measure the possibility for a unified stance of these actors on regional agreements.

This discussion stressed cautious action regarding:
- Unilateral initiative and positions vis-a-vis the need to strengthen interstate alliances and not to threaten the loss of strategic allies;
- Tendency to see the European Integration process as mutually exclusive from regional integration;
- Articulation of positions and unilateral initiative along with the need to create and strengthen interstate alliances and not to threaten the loss of strategic allies;
- Regional initiatives as a response to the stagnation of the region's European Integration process;
-The security of regional partnerships without equality of the parties and dealing with the past.

Energy and Environment

PIPS has been engaged in research, capacity building and advocacy in the field of energy and the environment for a number of years. Since 2012 PIPS has been part of the Regional Public Dialogue Initiative, supported by the GIZ Open Regional Fund for South-East Europe-Energy Efficiency, which aims to raise public debate on energy efficiency and climate protection in the seven Balkan states.

During these years, PIPS has organized a number of events (parliamentary hearings, roundtables, workshops, regional exchanges) and has also published policy reports, contributing to public dialogue on the aforementioned topics, advocating to policy makers and increasing the awareness of media and NGOs, civil society, providing recommendations for next steps and enhancing regional and cross-sectorial cooperation.

In the period 2017-2020 PIPS has collaborated with members of the Kosovo Assembly, partners, energy and urban mobility experts, MPs from the region, and MEPs in carrying out a number of activities aimed at enhancing MP capacities and the growing debate on the topics of energy efficiency and urban mobility. Activities under this project have intensified discussions in the Assembly of Kosovo and between the Assembly and civil society on environmental protection, sustainable development, and the development of environmental policies in line with EU Directives and Kosovo's obligations as a contracting state in the Energy Community. This engagement initiated the discussion on the establishment of the Green Group of Deputies in the Assembly of Kosovo, which was achieved in April 2019.

Further, in 2019, recognizing the need for qualitative reporting by Kosovar media on issues of energy efficiency, sustainable energy and climate change, PIPS has begun implementing the project "Capacity Building of Kosovar Journalists in the Field of Energy and Environment".

European integration

For this reason, PIPS is actively involved in the process of fulfilling European standards by Kosovar institutions, through monitoring, providing recommendations or organizing capacity building trainings.

The purpose of this pillar is to the quick and effective implementation of Acquis Communautaire, as well as enhancing the capacities Kosovo institutions ready to fulfill their obligations that derive from this document. In the past PIPS worked on promoting the Stabilization and Association Agreement, while currently working on overseeing the implementation of European Reform Agenda (ERA) by the Kosovo institutions.
