Kosovo

CSDRI pays special attention to the burning political issue of Serbia and the region, and that is the issue of Kosovo.

Our attention is primarily focused on three key political issues;

CSDRI addresses this political issue through active participation in dialogues and deliberations on the Kosovo issue with actors dealing with this issue, such as NGOs and think tanks, the Office for Kosovo and Metohija, the National Convention on the EU and the working group for Chapter 35, etc. We also build and maintain intensive relations and cooperation with socetial and political actors in Kosovo, both among Serbs and Albanians

Based on all the above activities and communication, we conduct research and make analyzes with recommendations in order to help achieve positive outcomes on all three policy issues, with special emphasis on the third issue we consider the most important.

CSDRI is a member of the National Convention on the EU Working Group for Chapter 35, For more on the working group, see NACIONALNI konvent o Evropskoj uniji

Comprehensive Understanding for a Comprehensive Agreement

The ‘Comprehensive Understanding for a Comprehensive Agreement’ project was implemented during 2019, with the support of the US Embassy in Belgrade.

The project researched the attitudes of Serbian citizens on the Kosovo issue, including attitudes on the Brussels dialogue, on potential solutions to the Kosovo issue, measuring ethnic distance, etc.

Also, within the project, we presented research and analysis at the most important security and political forum in the region – the Belgrade Security Forum.
