The Center for Affirmative Social Actions (CASA) presents flagship report, “Interests of Kosovo Serbs in the Process of Normalization Between Serbia and Kosovo“. This report delves into critical aspects of the Serbian community’s life in Kosovo.
The research underscores the demands of the Serbian community concerning the relationship between Belgrade and Pristina. Preserving their identity, linguistic rights, and cultural heritage takes precedence. The study also explores the idea of granting institutional autonomy to the Serbs in Kosovo. This autonomy primarily concentrates on local affairs to guarantee that decisions affecting the community remain unaffected by Pristina’s interference.
The study presents recommendations to both Belgrade and Pristina, urging a responsible approach, particularly from Belgrade, in addressing the worries and ambitions of the Serbian community in Kosovo. This involves strategies to attract young people back to Kosovo, combat unemployment, confront corruption, and support private businesses in creating job opportunities in the region.
We express our heartfelt gratitude to the British Embassy in Pristina for their backing of this project and their acknowledgment of the significance of amplifying the genuine voices of the community in the process of normalizing relations between Belgrade and Pristina.
