Human rights protection in Kosovo

18 Mar 2014 | by Caroline Sweeney

The Council of Europe and the European Union have published a report on the non-judicial human rights arrangements relating to human rights in Kosovo. The report examined the operation of these arrangements and has made a series o f
recommendations with a view to simplifying the institutional set up and enhancing its effectiveness. As part of the report a legislative expertise was undertaken with respect to existing and draft legislation relating to the Ombudsperson Institution, gender equality and protection against discrimination to ensure that the provisions in them were consistent with the reform proposals and the requirements of European Union law and applicable human rights treaties.

The report was prepared by a team of experts under the leadership of Jeremy McBride.
