Launch of the new website of the Constitutional Court


The Constitutional Court of the Republic of Kosovo in co-operation with USAID Justice System Strengthening Program in Kosovo (JSSP), marked with a solemn ceremony launching of the new website of the Court, which was held on Tuesday, on 16 January 2018, at “Square 21” in Prishtina. With an occasional speech, the President of the Constitutional Court of Kosovo, Mrs. Arta Rama-Hajrizi, and Director of the USAID Mission in Kosovo, Mr. James Hope, addressed the participants of this ceremony.

In her speech dedicated to launching of the new website of the Court, President Rama-Hajrizi, inter alia said: “The design of the new website is conceived by taking the features and qualities of the most modern websites of the justice institutions in the world, where it is particularly worth mentioning the new opportunity for advanced search of the Court’s decisions. I believe that from now on the new website will further approximate the public and the media with the decisions and work of the Constitutional Court”.

With the help of the new website, which represents a serious attempt of the Court to increase the level of its transparency as well as the quality of communication with the public, all citizens of the Republic of Kosovo, and in particular the representatives of the judiciary, lawyers and other members of the legal community, will now have new and far more practical opportunities for advanced search and research of the Court’s decisions.

Advanced search is made possible by the database of decisions on the website, which is partially designed according to the example of the website of the European Court of Human Rights seated in Strasbourg.

The advanced search option is also designed in other sections of the website, in addition to the possibility of direct subscription to bulletins of case law, newsletters and recent decisions published by the Court.

The development of the new website was funded entirely by the USAID Justice System Strengthening Program, one of the most important donors and partners of the Constitutional Court since its establishment.

The new website of the Constitutional Court was presented by the Director of Communication and Information Office and also the chairman of the Website Development Working Group, Mr. Veton Dula, as well as the Legal Adviser of the Court and one of the members of the Website Development Working Group, Mr. Jeton Bytyqi.
