New project of CLARD with PILPG in undertaking its Project “Justice and the People” designed to increase demand for, access to, and respect for justice by the people of Kosovo. It is expected that the joint collaboration with CLARD will assist in efforts to analyze existing structures, mechanisms, and processes within the justice system, and to identify citizens’ challenges in accessing the justice system. CLARD undertakes to accomplish the following aims; 
1. Expand the provision of legal aid to Kosovar citizens by operating legal aid clinics in at least six municipalities to provide assistance on matters of criminal procedure and on utilizing grievance procedures and oversight mechanisms; 
2) Increase the information and services available to help citizens understand the criminal justice system and the mechanisms available to pursue complaints against government officials, both within and outside that system; and
 3) Provide information to members of the public on advocacy efforts aimed at improving the justice system in Kosovo. To reduce the barrier to accessing services provided by the justice sector, CLARD will reach those citizens with the greatest need for assistance, including women, minorities, and those living at or near the poverty level. 
For implementation of this project CLARD is operating in seven legal clinics across Kosovo;

Since January 2011, the European Centre for Minority Issues (ECMI) Kosovo, in cooperation with the Centre for Legal Aid and Regional Development (CLARD) has been implementing the project: Enhancing the Positive Impact of the Law for Vulnerable and Marginalised Groups in Kosovo, funded by the EU and managed by the European Commission Liaison Office.
This project will deliver:
•    Free legal aid will be provided to several thousand citizens of Kosovo, focusing on vulnerable and marginalized groups, such as women, people with disabilities, members of minority communities and returnees. Legal aid is delivered through 8 regional offices throughout Kosovo. Issues often addressed are: property rights, employment rights, family rights, including domestic violence, access to institutions, registration documents, etc. Between January and June 2011 legal aid was delivered to 538 beneficiaries;
•    Several cases of strategic litigation will be undertaken. In other words, several cases will be brought to the Kosovo court in order to address significant issues of public interest, particularly related to the discrimination of vulnerable and marginalized groups. These cases have the purpose of changing policy or legislation and of enforcing the implementation of the legislation in place;
•    Several advocacy campaigns will be organised including media campaigns and direct meetings with relevant stakeholders. The advocacy campaigns will have the goal to put pressure on policy makers and legislators to address important legal and institutional deficiencies affecting vulnerable and marginalized groups;

Conference with Ombudsperson PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 18 March 2010 08:17



March 17th 2010

"We do not create the justice, we only follow it.” These were the words that the Ombudsperson Sami Kurteshi kept repeating during the press conference held today jointly with CLARD.

The Ombudsperson Institution and CLARD Kosovo were presenting today to the media an important case on religious discrimination in school.

Mirvete Bytyqi, legal adviser in CLARD, described the sensitive case of a 15 years old student, Arjeta Halimi, who has been expelled from her school because she was wearing an Islamic veil.

Arjeta’s case is the first one in Kosovo which has received a decision of the Court, and favorable to the student. Indeed, the District Court of Gjilan has decided that the Islamic veil was not breaking the rules of the school uniform wearing.   

The decision of the Court should be considered as an important step in the fight against discrimination in the Republic of Kosovo. It represents an important precedent which will be favorable to the religious freedom of the students in public schools.

Despite the decision of the Court in favor of Arjeta, the student is still not allowed to enter in her school.

In the end, the consolidation of the rule of law in the Republic of Kosovo and the eradication of discriminatory practices remain matters of great importance.
