Life in Kosovo Debates the Issue of Headscarves in Public Schools

Posted on

This Thursday, Life in Kosovo discusses the issue of wearing headscarves in public institutions.


Who is worried by the use of headscarves? What are the administrative orders regarding headscarves based on? Does anyone encourage women to wear the veil? Does the ban on headscarves in public schools violate human rights?

To discuss this issue, Edona Musa has the following guests in the studio:

Besa Ismaili – Ahmeti,
Fehmije Gashi – Bytyçi,
Zana Beqiri and
Xheraldina Pufja – Rexhepi.

Life in Kosovo will then broadcast Jeta Xharra’s interview with Noel Malcolm, one of the most renowned British historians and writers, also author of Kosovo: A Short History, a book that enlightened the global public on the circumstances that led to the Kosovo conflict. Malcolm talks about the history of Kosovo and the identity problems in the region.

BIRN then broadcasts a reportage from the researcher Faton Adem on the lack of standardisation of court certificates in Kosovo.


Life in Kosovo is a co-production between Kosovo Public Television, RTK and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network, BIRN. It is broadcast every Thursday, starting at 20:20
