Advocacy Platform “Empirica”

Practice of participation of Kosovo Serbs representatives at local and central level decision making circles insofar was very poor. Consensus on substantial and far-reaching participation of Kosovo Serbs in Kosovo political system was never reached. Under such circumstances, there were no accountability driven incentives of civil sector to engage in the process of advocacy at central level of governance. However, recent political events and opening of the public spaces has, created a liability of civil sector to engage in advocacy at policy level and monitoring of the work of local and central government. Advocacy platform envisaged through this program aims to create the framework for converged advocacy initiatives in northern Kosovo and further Kosovo Serb community. The platform will aim to gather CSOs, discuss the prime areas of interest of the Serbian community, develop proposals and policy recommendations and deliver them to decision makers at central and local level. and promote the researches, studies, policy papers and similar which offers empirical evidences for substantiation of existing local, national and regional policies of concern for Kosovo Serb community. Through creation of recognizable identity, advocacy and communication channels with Kosovo decision makers (both local and national level), and assurance of substantial visibility (media coverage), “Empirica” will sought to became a central advocacy platform for civil society organizations in northern Kosovo and wider, Kosovo level and region, on the matters of interests of Kosovo Serb community (minority rights, cultural heritage, rule of law, human rights etc.) and developmental initiatives (economic development, social equity, environmental initiatives, local democratic practices etc).
