Greater Internet Freedom

Internews launched in September 2020 a global consortium that aims to strengthen Internet freedom in 50 countries. The Consortium, which is funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), is a three-year initiative that aims to enhance digital safety of civil society actors, promote increased knowledge of Internet freedom issues, and advance human rights in the digital space. Open Data Kosovo will implement a number of activities in Kosovo while providing necessary support for regional activities led by the Regional Partner. These activities align with the Consortium effort to “place regional and local organisations at the forefront of the fight to preserve an open, interoperable, reliable, and secure Internet.” 

As such, as part of this project, ODK will carry on the number of activities as set below:

  • Facilitate and strengthen the network of civil society organisations working on digital rights issues in the Balkans by delivering one  on this aspect;
  • Supporting local IF advocacy strategies and awareness-raising campaigns through capacity-building initiatives on digital rights, informing at least 5 local media and 5 local CSOs on advocacy interventions in Kosovo.
  • Hold 2 Digital Rights Lectures with at least 20 university students and 20 high school students at learning institutions in Kosovo.


The project is supported by Internews:
