The OSCE Mission in Kosovo (the OSCE) strives to support responsive and inclusive institutions that address and promote rights of persons belonging to communities. Based on its ad hoc monitoring, the Mission recorded issues with obtaining civil status, civil registration and other documents. Personal documents are a precondition for accessing services in Kosovo and are basis for people’s ability to exercise the rights they are entitled to. The personal documentation issues have been particularly problematic for the most vulnerable communities in Kosovo, including women, displaced persons and returnees, but they affect people belonging to all communities. Some of the issues that have so far resurfaced range from the inability to obtain a document to invalidity of some documents based on either unregulated or inconsistent practices or the lack of comprehensive policy and legislation. However, a full scope of these problems is unknown and the OSCE would like to hire a consultant to conduct a complete mapping of issues, legal analysis of existing legislation and provide recommendations for further action that is required to address the problems.
The objective of the consultancy is a production of a comprehensive report that includes legal analysis and mapping of the issues pertaining to the personal documents, as well as recommendations for necessary intervention.
The duration of consultancy is 65 working days.
