Law on the Diaspora and institutional mechanisms

The Kosovo Parliament, on 15th April 2010, approved the Law on the Kosovo Diaspora, which aims to affect the protection and cultivation of linguistic, cultural and educational identity, among members of the Diaspora and their ties to the institutions of the Republic of Kosovo, to help in organizing the Diaspora in different states where the Kosovar Diaspora live, to encourage and develop inter-cultural relations between the Republic of Kosovo and the states where the Diaspora are present.
