The Ombudsperson Institution has launched its new electronic guide, “Human Rights Platform”, during an event at the National Library “Pjetër Bogdani“ in Prishtina.
The platform aims to promote the implementation of fundamental human rights and freedoms, as guaranteed by the Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo, international human rights acts, and applicable laws in Kosovo.
This platform will serve to provide easier access to information about local and international human rights laws. The platform offers two guides making a structured link between legal and judicial instruments on human rights and 17 Sustainable Development Objectives.
“The platform is a working tool that gives an overview of the Ombudsperson’s conventions, laws, and recommendations with just one click. The platform is accessible to all of us, free of charge, and I hope it will be an auxiliary tool for all citizens of Kosovo,” said Hilmi Jashari, Ombudsperson.
Marta Gazideda from the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) said: “The platform we are launching today is aimed at effectively promoting basic human rights in Kosovo. The platform will also include stakeholder trainings.”
The Human Rights Platform was designed by the Ombudsperson Institution and developed in cooperation with UNDP with financial support from the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
