Center for Strategic Litigation is a platform that seeks to strengthen the rule of law in Kosovo through strategic litigation. The Center identifies strategic cases, or cases that can benefit many citizens, and then prepares and sends them before courts of law or the public administration. The representation of the parties in these cases is done by the lawyers or jurists of the Center for Strategic Litigation, a team dedicated to the protection of the represented person’s individual rights, as well to making a change for everyone else in the same circumstances. The Center identifies strategic cases two ways: (i) through research done at the Center, and (ii) through receiving applications from persons interested to bring their case to the Center. The Center is open to the public and everyone can apply. For more information on how to apply and how the evaluation process is click How to Apply.

Strategic litigation is the litigation of cases that can benefit many citizens; cases that can serve the interest of the public in addition to serving the interest of the individual person. Strategic litigation is recognized as a powerful tool for social, political and legal reform, because its purpose is to reach broader and long-lasting change, rather than just winning the case at hand. This process also includes the use of the media, advocacy, trainings and other instruments, in order to raise the public awareness about certain issues that need to be addressed, and to pressure responsible authorities to reach the right decisions and in due time.
