The Rise of the Citizen: Challenges and Choices
The HDR for Kosovo 2004 will provide an excellent opportunity to deepen our understanding of Human Development and how it applies to Kosovo. Whilst the first report established a base-line, this second report will explore in greater detail one particular aspect of Human Development and how this pertains to Kosovo. The proposed theme reflects a judgement that in 2004 key issues of public debate are likely to include: Assembly elections (in November 2004); an accelerated transfer of competencies to the PISG in 2003; decreasing international assistance and oversight; consolidation of the democratisation process; and an ongoing debate about decentralization. To be valuable, the HDR must be topical therefore this context is important.
