As part of the Executive Program “Youth in politics”, the Balkans Group organized two study visits to the institutions of the Republic of Kosovo. First, youngsters visited the Constitutional Court, where they met with the judges, Mrs. Selvete Gërxhaliu Krasniqi and Mr. Nexhmi Rexhepi, who during their presentation discussed the role and importance of the Constitutional Court in the legal system of the Republic of Kosovo. Also, competencies, legal basis, and organogram were discussed during the meeting.
The visit continued to the Central Bank of Kosovo, where the young people met with acting Deputy Governor Mrs. Shkëndije Nahi, the Director of the Department for Banking Supervision Mr. Mentor Geci and the Director of the Department for Insurance Supervision Ms. Ramize Ramadani. Among other things, in the meeting participants discussed about the duties and responsibilities of CBK, financial stability and fiscal policies in Kosovo.
The “Youth in Politics” component is part of the multi-pillar project “Elevate peace & state-building agenda and advancing European agenda”. Balkan Group’s Youth in Politics education programme seeks to offer young individuals and members of political parties throughout Kosovo a chance to develop a practical toolkit to help them overcome some of the most critical hurdles to their progressing career.
The project is funded by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Pristina.
