The address of Acting President, Dr. Vjosa Osmani at the International Conference held on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights and at the same time, the commencement of the German Presidency of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe, Acting President Dr. Vjosa Osmani participated today at the virtual international conference held on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the European Convention on Human Rights. 


Although it remains undisputed that this Convention presents the most important and successful document to date for the protection of human rights in Europe, it is unfortunate that Kosovo is not yet allowed to join the Council of Europe, which would result in the access to the court of Strasbourg for the citizens of Kosovo. Such a thing constitutes a violation of human rights through the denial of the right to access to justice for the citizens of Kosovo.
