Students from University of York visit KWN

On 28 November, a group of students from the Department of Politics, Post War Recovery Studies, University of York, visited the Kosovo Women’s Network (KWN). This is the fourth time that various generations of students, led by Dr Rebecca E. Engel and Dr Jacob Eriksson, from this University visit KWN during their study visits to Kosovo, over the last four years.

Igballe Rogova, KWN Executive Director informed the students of the work that the network has done since its establishment. A particular focus during this meeting was put on the role the women and the civil society play in the process of dialogue, inter-ethnic reconciliation, refugee reintegration, and gender equality.

The representatives of the University of York thanked KWN for the time to welcome the students of this University, emphasizing that such meetings help them acquire a hands-on experience of the empowering best practices and the roles that women and society play in all the spheres of life.

“This is one of the best visits and most informative we had during our stay here in Kosovo”, said one of the students.
