Civil servant training programs and capacity building on the rights of the non-majority communities and non-discrimination in Kosovo

The present report outlines the legislative and institutional measures undertaken by the Government of Kosovo to address issues of ethnic discrimination in the public service, and provide training on inter-ethnic equality. According to a report titled “Legal protection against discrimination in South East Europe”, produced by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) in 2016, identifying, reporting, handling and even evidencing discrimination in Kosovo remains very low. Partly connected to local tradition and culture regarding human rights, and as such a weakness in recognizing and registering discrimination at a grassroots level, this report will address the lack of training among civil servants in human rights and anti-discrimination, to understand how discrimination remains concealed at an institutional level.
