Co-operation of the Assembly of Kosovo with Civil Society
This report reviews the progress made by the Assembly of Kosovo in developing its relations with civil society. It analyses participation of civil society in the work of the Assembly in a comprehensive manner. It gathers best practices from parliaments in the Western Balkans region and the rest of Europe on three aspects of public participation: the provision by the legislature of actionable information to the public, the existence of institutional mechanisms for facilitating civil society participation, and the application of sound practices of public consultation. The report proceeds to assess the Assembly’s performance against these practices, acknowledging important achievements and identifying key challenges.
