    Analysis of the economic situation in the Serb-populated areas in Kosovo

    The Institute for Territorial Economic Development presents the study "Analysis of the economic situation in the Serb-populated areas in Kosovo". The study deals with topics related to the structure of the economy in the majority Serb municipalities in Kosovo, employment and business challenges. Special attention was paid to the topic of access to the financial market and measures to combat the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as openness to economic integration in Kosovo. The study was prepared within the project " Analysis of the state of the economy in Serbian environments in Kosovo - the impact of the economy on democracy in society" implemented by InTER with the support of the Kosovo Foundation for Open Society (KFOS). The project is part of a broader initiative " Democracy, Openness and Perspectives of the Serb Community in Kosovo - OPEN" implemented by KFOS in cooperation with 9 CSOs active in the Serb community in Kosovo. Through the analysis, the initiative will contribute to a better understanding of the state of democracy, openness and the current position and prospects for the future of the Serb community in Kosovo, and as a platform it represents the most critical findings from the analyses.

    Serb Community Outlook on Privatization in Kosovo

    Besides the traditional challenges following every privatization of state and socially owned enterprises and property in transitional economies, this process in Kosovo faced additional hardships, reflected in an ambiguous legal framework, issues in establishing the ownership over the property of enterprises subject to privatization, but also many other situations exclusive to Kosovo. UNMIK Mission in Kosovo was established following the adoption of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244/1999, and it took upon itself to build the legal system and institutions, as well as to manage public, state and socially owned property of Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and Republic of Serbia. All these years, but also after the unilateral declaration of Kosovo independence, privatization has been one of the most controversial public policies in this area, against which legal disagreements and different interests collided, influencing the deepening of mistrust in relations between the Serb community and Kosovo institutions. This paper provides a historical overview of the legal and institutional instruments for privatization in Kosovo before and after the declaration of independence, as well as the repercussions of this process in Serb areas. It should also be noted that this analysis is one of the few publications on the subject of privatization in Serb areas in Kosovo. Lack of similar publications, among others, is directly related to the issue of availability of publically accessible information, necessary to develop a comprehensive study that would do justice to this topic.
