Algemene situatie


Sinds jaren volgt de Cedoca-Balkandesk de situatie in Kosovo op de voet. De COI Focus is gebaseerd op de informatie die Cedoca verworven heeft via eigen opzoekingen en op basis van informatie die is verworven via het Cedoca-contactennetwerk. De meeste bronnen komen van andere lidstaten van de Europese Unie, de Hoge Commissaris van de Verenigde Naties voor de Vluchtelingen, de Raad van Europa en van andere relevante organisaties (UNDP, EASO, Freedom House, Amerikaanse ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken, Transparency International, ….).

Deze COI Focus Algemene situatie is een actualisering van een eerder overzicht van de situatie in Kosovo (laatstelijk op 12 januari 2017). Het onderzoek is afgesloten op 10 juli 2018 en beslaat de situatie tot 24 juni 2018.


The policy implemented by the Commissioner General is based on a thorough analysis of accurate and up-to-date information on the general situation in the country of origin. This information is collated in a professional manner from various, objective sources, including the EASO, the UNHCR, relevant international human rights organisations, non-governmental organisations, professional literature and coverage in the media. When determining policy, the Commissioner General does not only examine the COI Focuses written by Cedoca and published on this website, as these deal with just one aspect of the general situation in the country of origin. The fact that a COI Focus could be out-of-date does not mean that the policy that is being implemented by the Commissioner General is no longer up-to-date.

When assessing an application for asylum, the Commissioner General not only considers the actual situation in the country of origin at the moment of decision-making, he also takes into account the individual situation and personal circumstances of the applicant for international protection. Every asylum application is examined individually. An applicant must comprehensively demonstrate that he has a well-founded fear of persecution or that there is a clear personal risk of serious harm. He cannot, therefore, simply refer back to the general conditions in his country, but must also present concrete, credible and personal facts.

There is no policy paper for this country available on the website.
