Kosovo Institutions Applying the Law on the Use of Languages
In the period from July to October 2007, the Humanitarian Law Center – Kosovo (HLC – Kosovo) researched and analyzed the extent to which local Kosovo institutions, Kosovo Assembly, District and Municipal Court in Prishtinë/Priština, Kosovo Property Agency, and Health Care Centre IV apply the Law on the Use of Languages. HLC-Kosovo conducted research in the following multiethnic municipalities: (Prizren/Prizren, Fushë Kosovë/Kosovo Polje, Klinë/Klina, Gjilan/Gnjilane, Peja/Peć, and Dragaš/Dragash). It was also conducted in the municipalities with a predominantly Albanian population (Skenderaj/Srbica, Deçan/Dečane, Gllogovc/Glogovac, Malishevë/Mališevo, Podujevë/Podujevo/), and in the municipalities with predominantly Serb population (Štrpce/Shtërpcë, Leposavić/Leposaviq, Zubin Potok/Zubin Potok, and Zvečan/Zveçan). HLC-Kosovo treated Prishtinë/Priština and Mitrovicë/Mitrovica as special cases.
