Life in Kosovo Discusses Human Rights

Posted on

This Friday the “Life in Kosovo” show will analyse what people in Kosovo understand by human rights.

Who are the defenders of human rights in Kosovo? What kind of work do they do, and how do institutions deal with this issue? Who are the main victims of discrimination in Kosovo and why?

If human rights are violated – to whom can citizens address their problems and complaints about them? Why did Kosovars lose their high sense of humanity and solidarity after the war? What do we do as a society in order to help the victims of heavy human rights violations?

To discuss these issues we will have the following panel in the studio:
Hilmi Jashari – Ombudsman of Kosovo;
Hina Jilani- Special Representative of the United Nations for Human Rights defenders
Sarah Maliqi – Director of the Youth Initiative for Human Rights (YIHR);
Behxhet Shala – from the Council for the Defence of Human Rights and Freedoms;
Habit Hajredini – Official for good governance and human rights within the Kosovo government
Afrim Caka – former prisoner of Dubrava prison

The “Life in Kosovo” show is a co-production of the public service radio television of Kosovo, RTK, and the Balkan Investigative Reporting Network. It is broadcast every Friday, beginning at 20:15.
