The USAID Property Rights Program (PRP) in Kosovo is focused on improving property rights for all citizens, and targeting women’s rights to property in particular, through interventions designed to strengthen the rule of law, better coordinate policy regarding property, and improve access to information and understanding of property rights.
This Midterm National Survey on Property Rights in Kosovo (the Midterm Survey) was conducted by UBO Consulting to gather data on current perceptions, attitudes and behaviors of people in Kosovo towards property ownership and registration and women’s rights to inherit property; the people’s knowledge of the property rights regime in Kosovo; their level of satisfaction with courts in resolving property/inheritance disputes; and their exposure to PRP communications products. This survey is a follow-up to the “National Baseline Survey for Property Rights in Kosovo,” which was carried out in 2015 (the Baseline Survey).
The survey took place between November 28, 2016 and December 20, 2016. A nationally representative sample of 1,251 adults living in Kosovo was used to gather information for this survey. There was an intentional oversampling of minority communities for the survey, which included 851 Kosovo Albanians, 200 Kosovo Serbs and 200 non-Serb minorities. The oversampling was done to permit an analysis of the findings for statistical significance. It is important to emphasize, however, that results presented in this report have been weighted to reflect the size of the minority communities relative to the overall population.
