PUBLIC PANELS OF KOSOVO AND SERBIAN MPs
On April 25-26, 2017 CIG organized two public panels with Kosovo and Serbian members of parliament: one in North Mitrovica and one in Pristina. The discussions focused on the integration of Kosovo’s north. The questions from the audience reflected public dissatisfaction with the current situation in the north and Serb reservations about integration into Kosovo’s institutions. The parliamentarians, both Serbian and Kosovo, stressed that this integration has no alternative and that the Serbs in the north should engage more in brining up their concerns to Belgrade and to Pristina, and should get more involved in the implementation process. The MPs spoke about the legally binding agreement that will culminate the current normalization process between Serbia and Kosovo. The debates were widely covered by the Kosovo and the Serbian media.
