Dan Manning, 2012. This report was prepared on behalf of a network of legal services NGOs in the Western Balkans, known as the Ohrid Initiative for Free Legal Aid. The purpose of the report is to call attention to achievements of legal aid organizations, opportunities to create stable institutions promoting legal empowerment, and the risk that the investments already made will be lost. This report is the outcome of an exploratory visit to Kosovo made by the author Dan Manning and PILnet’s Dmitry Shabelnikov in the spring of 2012.
