Posted on

Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) Kosovo and Group for Legal and Political Studies (GLPS) published the report titled “Panic Selling: Assessing the main challenges and deficiencies of Kosovo’s privatization”.

The analysis provides an overview of the main challenges and problems encountered during the privatization process in Kosovo.

More precisely, it highlights problems such as institutional dualism, ownership disputes, Kosovo’s unresolved international status, methods of privatization, the negative impact on employment, highly under-priced sale of SOEs, corruption, undervalued agricultural land, non-utilization of privatization funds, and the exclusion of citizens from the privatization process.

In addition, this policy analysis offers a range of policy recommendations, which if seriously taken into consideration by relevant institutions, would result in the improvement of the privatization process.
