In a society segregated physically and psychologically by the legacy of conflict, through the National Democratic Institute (NDI), USAID is convening Kosovars of diverse ethnic backgrounds in purposeful dialogue about the issues that both divide and unite them to engender cooperation between communities on issues of shared concern and interest.
The program’s main objectives are to:
The USAID Contract Law Enforcement (CLE) Program is a three year program to improve rule of law in Kosovo and create a better business environment for economic development and investment. The program is built around two strategic goals:
1) Assisting Kosovo institutions to improve the enforcement of civil judgments, while dramatically reducing the backlog of enforcement cases in the Kosovo court system.
The overall goal of the program is to promote free and fair elections in Kosovo through work with local organizations to conduct thorough election observation.
AKT aims to increase constructive interethnic cooperation and interaction between Kosovo’s majority and minority populations, which is vital to the security and stability of the region. The program takes a holistic approach toward the integration of minority populations by partnering with municipalities and other government partners to support the engagement of targeted communities. In particular, the program works to improve conditions to enable ethnic minorities to actively engage in the work force and Government of Kosovo institutions while preserving and protecting their unique cultural heritage.
USAID/Kosovo Acting Mission Director Chris Edwards and President of the Republic of Kosovo Atifete Jahjaga today signed an amendment to the bilateral Development Objective Grant Agreement signed between the two governments in December 2013.
