PUBLIC OPINION: PUBLIC SERVICES, INTERETHNIC RELATIONS, YOUTH AND CIVIL SOCIETY IN KOSOVOPublished: Jul 19, 2022 Reading time: 1 minute
The report provides insight into how ordinary citizens in our target municipalities feel about and perceive the delivery of local public services; to what extent local authorities meet their needs; how much they participate in local planning; how they interact with their neighbors from other ethnicities, how they view current opportunities for young people; and how they think civil society contributes to their local communities.
The research was conducted with 2,100 residents in Gjilan/Gnjilane, Leposavić/Leposaviq, Lipjan/Lipljan, Pejë/Peć, and Štrpce/Shtërpcë. We were particularly interested in people’s perceptions and experiences with public services in their municipalities. Data presented in this report shows changes between Novemeber 2020 (Baseline) and November 2021 (Midline). The next round of household surveys will be conducted in December 2022, and the report will be shared publicly, as well.
We hope you will find this report informative and interesting!
