Launching of the Anti-Corruption Week 2017 in Kosovo

December 4, 2017

On 4 December, Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS), together with five other civil society organizations (hereinafter: Coalition of CSO’s for the Anti-Corruption Week) have officially launched the activities of the “Anti –Corruption Week in Kosovo 2017”, supported by the Embassy of the United States in Kosovo. Under the slogan #bashkeendreqim and #unitedagainstcorruption, this five-day dynamic campaign is consisted of various activities including roundtables, hearing sessions with the parliamentary committees, press conferences and symbolic protests, among others. This is the second year that the Anti-Corruption Week is being organized in Kosovo, but unlike last year, during the 2017 Anti-Corruption Week, the activities will include concrete cases of those individuals suspected of involvement in corruptive activities, which possess “immunity” or for which cases prosecution bodies have failed to treat them as a result of political influence or interest groups. In addition, through this series of events, the Coalition aims to tackle various problematic issues related to the Anti-Corruption agenda and to create a momentum for an enhanced public debate on the corruption topics, while gathering policy recommendations which would strengthen the efforts towards combating corruption in Kosovo. In order to access the calendar of events for the Anti-Corruption Week 2017, please click here.

The Coalition consists of these organizations: Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS), Kosovo Law Institute (KLI), Kosovar Institute for Policy and Development (KIPRED), Institute GAP, Initiative for Progress (INPO), Çohu and Institute Columbus.
