Annual Report on the State of Language Rights in Kosovo: Language Rights in the Time of the Pandemic

The annual report covers the period from 13 March 2020, when the epidemic was officially declared in Kosovo, to 15 October 2020. The aim of this report is to document the failures of central institutions regarding compliance with the Law on the Use of Languages during this period. The focus of the report is on respect for official bilingualism and equal use of the Serbian language, as a less represented official language. In this regard, the report will seek to point out the detrimental consequences that the lack of information in the Serbian language has had on the well-being of members of the Serb and other non-majority communities in Kosovo who use the Serbian language in communication with institutions.
