As the prospect of indictments issued by the Special Prosecutor’s Office looms large, the time is ripe to begin scrutinizing the legal framework under which the Kosovo Specialist Chambers (KSC) will be operating.

To this end, this Supranational Criminal Law Series lecture, co-organized by the Institute for European Studies, will focus on various legal matters that will be of critical importance for the KSC. More specifically, the panel discussion will address cooperation with the KSC, the victim participation and reparations regime of the KSC, and defense rights under the KSC framework.

The Panel will be introduced by Mathias Holvoet (Senior Associate Researcher Institute for European Studies (IES) & Affiliated Researcher, Fundamental Rights and Constitutionalism (FRC). It consists of reputable specialists who have both the theoretical knowledge and practical experience with regards the issues at hand.
