The Kosovo Foundation for Open Society has supported Kosovo’s European integration process since 2006, when it founded the European Integration and Good Governance program. Since then, the Foundation has constantly supported the non-governmental organizations’ engagement in the process with their analysis, monitoring of policy developments, public discussions, and advocacy processes. The support has resulted in numerous analyses through the years and acquisition of essential knowledge and expertise over the processes by Kosovo’s civil society organizations. Hence, in joint effort with a number of organizations already active in certain segments of integration process, the Foundation initiated the project “Civil Society for the Progress Report 2014” through which it offered the organizations an opportunity to channel their contribution to the upcoming Progress Report and the current Stabilization and Association Process Dialogue through focused and well-informed analysis, built on their multi-year experience and engagement.
Each analysis produced within the project addresses a specific segment of the current dialogue between Kosovo and the European Union, informing about the current situation, from the civil society’s point of view, followed by the recommendations on the needed improved performance.
We hope that this exercise will be of value not only to Kosovo’s civil society organizations for further amplification of their voice within the integration process, but also to the European Union and the Government of Republic of Kosovo towards building of a standing cooperation with this segment of the state-building process. Ultimately, we hope that as a result of all the stakeholders’ engagement, Kosovo’s European integration process will accelerate, overcoming all the political barriers that stand on our way to this destination.
