The goal of the Kosovo Property Rights Program is to improve the property rights regime to strengthen the rule of law and increase economic growth and investment. The project is directly engaging and build capacity of Kosovo civil society organizations and municipal governments to sustainably and effectively implement reforms beyond the life of the project. We are implementing interconnected and mutually reinforcing land tenure and property rights interventions across four program objectives: improving coordination and identification of policy priorities; improving court processes for property claims; strengthening women’s rights to use property; and improving access to Information and understanding of property rights.
Tetra Tech helped strengthen the administrative capacity of the courts as the principal subcontractor to the National Center for State Courts. The three central goals of the project were (1) the establishment and implementation of strategies and policies for the administration and proper functioning of the court system, (2) the creation of an Administrative Department of Justice, and (3) the development and implementation of administrative systems for the trial courts. The team established case tracking and petty cash/purchasing systems and developed systems to improve public court access. Tetra Tech developed software for records management and the collection of fines, fees, and forfeitures and for judicial statistics, case histories, and calendars. The team also developed the design for reconstruction of a courthouse in Kamenica that became a model for other courts.
