10 July 2019 – The Kosovo Serbia Policy Advocacy Group (KSPAG) held its third Steering Committee meeting hosted by the Aktiv NGO in North Mitrovica. Members of the KSPAG consortium reviewed and discussed the activities and progress of the project ‘Promoting and Communicating Benefits of the Kosovo-Serbia EU Facilitated Dialogue’ funded by the European Union and Royal Norwegian Embassy in Kosovo.
After the introductory remarks, the Steering Committee members analysed how the implemented activities contributed to the objective of the project to communicate the benefits of the technical dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia to the wider public and specific target groups. Within this discussion, the members of the steering committee discussed the project plan, the content and the framework of each activity, and details on the communication and outreach planning, as well as the challenges facing the project.
The Kosovo Serbia Policy Advocacy Group was established in early 2018, as a tool to challenge the narratives at the society level and help policymakers to make the agreements in a more transparent manner. The Consortium is comprised of eight like-minded NGOs: Balkans Policy Research Group (BPRG), Democracy for Development Institute (D4D), Kosovar Centre for Security Studies (KCSS) and NGO AKTIV from Kosovo, and Belgrade Fund for Political Excellence (BFPE), Belgrade Centre for Security Policy (BCSP), European Movement in Serbia (EMinS) and Lawyers Committee for Human Rights (YUCOM) from Serbia.
The Steering Committee meeting was organized with the assistance of the European Union. The content derived from the meeting is the sole responsibility of Kosovo-Serbia Policy Advocacy Group Consortium and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the European Union.
