Welcome to the Council of Europe Office in Pristina
The Council of Europe Office in Pristina began its cooperation activities in the areas of human rights, rule of law and democracy in 1999. Since then the Office has continuously facilitated the delivery of significant programmes of support towards the realisation of Council of Europe standards in practice for all people, assisting key institutions in the process of their democratic reforms.
Our cooperation has so far focused on building the capacities of judges and prosecutors on European Human Rights standards, supporting effective civil society engagement, promoting cultural diversity, providing expert support to legislative development, reinforcing independent institutions such as the Ombudsperson Institution, strengthening the role of the media and working to counteract economic crime and corruption, and elections monitoring. We have also provided the support of our expert monitoring and other mechanisms in line with relevant agreements.
The Council of Europe functions in full compliance with the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 and in this context the UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), OSCE Mission, the European Union Office in Kosovo and European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo are among our key strategic partners. Driven by a commitment to addressing local needs, ensuring value-added contributions and reinforcing partnerships, the Council of Europe Office in Pristina actively coordinates efforts with all relevant local and international actors in the field.
You will find further information about the Office, our cooperation and monitoring in the links above, as well as about the work of the Council of Europe in general.
