NEW DEAL, OLD TROUBLES
Hoping to help drive the implementation of the Ohrid Agreement in the right direction, the Council for Inclusive Governance (CIG) convened a group of political observers from Serbia and Kosovo for a discussion on changing the fundamental dynamic in relations between Serbia and Kosovo and define a number of steps that could ease the barriers to the implementation. The workshop was held in Belgrade, Serbia, in April 2023 and was supported by the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) in Serbia and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA). CIG’s vice president Shpetim Gashi prepared this report. The report outlines the key discussion takeaways and it does not necessarily represent the views of individual participants or the group as a whole, CIG, FES, and FDFA.
