Abstract

 

The purpose of this study is to draw attention to the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian minority groups in Kosovo who find themselves in a very vulnerable position after the war and to investigate the most important human rights violations that affect these minorities.

The method for this study has been qualitative text analysis with a descriptive approach for idea analysis with the theoretical perspective on multicultural citizenship. The material consists of two reports, Community rights assessment report by the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe Mission in Kosovo and Post war Kosovo and its policies towards the Roma, Ashkali, and Egyptian communities by FXB Center for Health and Human Rights, Harvard School of Public Health. I use descriptive idea analysis in order to study the violations that take place against minorities in Kosovo and what the reason for these violations is, as well as what is or can be done to overcome these violations. The research question is centered around description and a comparison between the contents of one material and another.

The result of this study demonstrates that both reports raise awareness of discrimination and human rights violations towards these minorities in Kosovo. Group-specific rights for ethnic and national minorities are needed to ensure that all citizens are treated with genuine equality. Through inter-group equality, equal recognition of education throughout Kosovo, adequate representation in governing organs, and similar measures, discrimination against minority groups can be prevented.
