Outreach

The aim of the KSC Outreach Programme is to increase knowledge and awareness about the work of the Specialist Chambers. Through frequent consultations with organisations, information sessions with journalists, lectures and a visitor’s programme for students, town hall meetings and roundtable discussions, as well as regular updates through newsletters, the Outreach Programme will disseminate timely information on the work of the KSC and foster dialogue about it. Specific important topics and procedures e.g. Defence and Victims' Participation are explained in the KSC factsheets. By active engagement and communication with Kosovo non-governmental and other civil society organisations as well as various communities, the KSC aims to counteract some of the communication challenges associated with managing relocated proceedings. Supported by a generous grant over two years provided by the Swiss Government, KSC in 2018 is substantially strengthening its activities and presence in Kosovo. The objective is to foster direct communication with Kosovo society through an information network reaching out to civil society, youth, legal professionals, media and others.
