BALKAN CIVIL SOCIETY REPRESENTATIVES EYE NOVEL EU ACCESSION TACTICS IN PRISHTINA

The second edition of KCSF Executive Program successfully concluded.

Top-level executives of civil society organizations from Western Balkans gathered in Pristina from 22 to 24 October to network, share experience and boost their capacities to contribute further in the EU accession process.

The Executive Program was delivered in the scope of a long-term collaboration between the KCSF and the College of Europe, with the support of the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) and the Government of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.

This executive program aimed to:

  • Boost the capacities of civil society organizations in EU’s institutional set-up, policies, and challenges towards accession of Western Balkans;
  • Empower civil society organizations to provide contributions in the European integration process through strategic and tactical approaches for the EU enlargement and accession perspective;
  • Provide opportunities for CSOs to increase practical skills; and
  • Expand CSOs network to better leverage synergies for inter-organizational collaborations afterwards.
