02.10.2017
In the second week of September, representatives of the International Relations Committee of the House of Lords, Baroness Coussin, Lord Grocott and Baroness Helic, Roshani  Palamakumbura, policy analyst, and Kenneth Morrison, advisor, stayed in Prishtina and Mitrovica to get closely acquainted with the current situation in Kosovo. On 19 September, the representatives of this Committee met with the executive directors of the Kosovo Women’s Network Igballe Rogovoa and Kosovo Rehabilitation Center for Torture Victims (KRCT) Feride Rushiti.
During the meeting, the attendees discussed the developments and challenges faced particularly by women-led organizations, the socio-economic and political situation of Kosovo. A particular emphasis was placed on the discussion about the survivors of sexual violence during the war in Kosovo. Rogova and Rushiti informed the attendees in more details of their work and advocacy in the process of rehabilitation and recognition of their status as survivors of sexual violence during the war in Kosovo.
            “On 8 March 2012, we publicly sought legal protection and justice for the survivors of sexual violence. Today, we have been granted legal protection, but we must make sure that they see the already belated justice for them,” Igballe Rogova said.
