EULEX HoM Meets with IHEDN Visiting Delegation
A delegation from the French Institute for Higher National Defence Studies (Institut des Hautes Etudes de Défense Nationale - IHEDN) visited EULEX Kosovo and met with the Head of Mission, Ms. Alexandra Papadopoulou. She briefed them on the mission’s new (since June 2016) mandate, the progressive transitioning of the monitoring, mentoring and advising (MMA) activities to other actors, the transfer of cases to Kosovo institutions and the sustainability of reforms. The ensuing discussion mainly focused on Kosovo’s progress and ongoing challenges in the rule of law. The delegates were particularly interested in efforts to combat corruption, and current challenges in the judiciary. "Strengthening the rule of law is an ongoing and complex process and, in this context, it will be key to ensure the sustainability of the reforms made," the HoM concluded.
