We will continue further with the third issue of Newsletter about the work of OPIC partners in Kosovo. In this issue of the Newsletter you will read news related to cultural development, gender equality, participatory decision-making, as well as the current social and political issues in the country. Kosovo spent the last months coping with the political and institutional crisis. We enter the fourth month since national elections took place, while the main state institutions have not been established yet. The political forces have not yet been able to overcome the differences, thus prolonging numerous processes that impact the lives of citizens.
Kosovo citizens proved their maturity and democratic orientation by casting their votes, enabling the election processes to be assessed as fair and regular. In spite the societal commitment to democratic values, the political spectrum of the country is still struggling to fulfil their constitutional responsibilities. The current developments are seen as quite harmful for civil society attempts to restore public trust towards state institutions. The political forces are being constantly invited to show political and institutional maturity as the situation has become alarming. Kosovo has reached the limits of functioning in an institutional gap. The current stalemate needs to be overcome soon and democratic reforms shall resume.
