Cohort #1: Data Capacity for CSO Advocacy in Kosovo

The first cohort of our program brought together eight civil society and media organizations in Kosovo. Our implementation focused on strengthening their capacities to advocate for increased government transparency and accountability using open data.

Our program produced eight new data-first projects by some of the leading civil society voices that help build a more informed public and keep public institutions in check. We invite you to check out Kosovo Cohort participants' profiles and results!

Participating Organizations: Democracy for Development | Democracy Plus | Kosovo Democratic Institute | Kosovo Centre for Transparency, Accountability and Anti-Corruption | New Social Initiative | Public Organization for Local Initiatives and Supports | Riinvest Institute | S’bunker ~ Observers: Millennium Foundation Kosovo , the Center for Investigative Journalism of Serbia (CINS) , Balkan Investigative Reporting Network (BIRN) in Kosovo and Serbia

Our Kosovo Cohort #1 was made possible through a partnership with the U.S. Department of State through Tech Camp Kosovo, a project implemented the Bureau of International Information Programs (BIIP), and the U.S. Embassy, Pristina in partnership with FLOSSK.
