Teaching in the Project: Enhancing Social Scientific Research in Kosovo and its Integration into the European Research Area (ESSIe)
ESSIe focuses on the priority sector “social sciences” as stipulated in the National Research Programme of Kosovo 2010-2015 (NRP). It contributes to the upgrading of social scientific knowledge in support of the socio-economic development of Kosovo.
Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH) constitute the majority of scientific work in Kosovo, which strongly correlates to the educational demand in the tertiary sector which is dominated by strong SSH disciplines such as law, economics, political sciences etc. In pure research terms, however, social scientific research lacks far behind its given volume in terms of tertiary education.
