The Centre will be a non-political forum where all members of the community can meet and work on rebuilding society. The OSCE hopes it will help build interethnic relationships between Prizren's various communities.
The OSCE sees NGOs as vital in the development of a civil society. After Pec/Peja, the Prizren Resource Centre is the second of its kind. A further seven NGO centres will be open around Kosovo by the summer.
The NGO opening in Prizren comes just days after the OSCE opened a Field Office and a Contact Office in Orahovac/Rahovec, further strengthening its presence in the region. The field office is in the Albanian part of town and the contact office in the Serbian section.
