During the two days of the visit, members of the Working Group had the opportunity to speak with representatives of the authorities in Pristina, church dignitaries, civil society organizations from Mitrovica, Gracanica and Pristina, and media in Kosovo reporting in Serbian language.

Members of the Working Group visited the Ministry of Communities and Return in Pristina and talked with Minister Dalibor Jevtic and his associates about the current challenges of the Serb community in Kosovo, as well as the prospects of negotiations on the normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina.
During the visit, the members visited the monastery of Visoki Decani, where they talked with the abbot of the monastery, Father Sava Janjic, about the position of the church and the protection of the Serbian cultural and religious heritage in Kosovo.

Two working breakfasts were organized with CSOs and the media in Mitrovica and Gracanica, where participants discussed the implementation of the Brussels agreements, cooperation between civil society organizations and the media in the Serb and Albanian communities, and cooperation with government officials. A meeting was also held in Pristina with CSOs from Pristina, which monitor the dialogue between the two sides and other issues of importance for the normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina.

The study visit was supported by the Open Society Foundation, Serbia within the project to support the work of the Working Group of the National Convention on the European Union for Chapter 35, implemented by the Institute for Territorial Economic Development (InTER).
