On Wednesday, March 15, 2023, the Cooperation Agreement was signed between the University of Priština Faculty of Law temporarily seated in Kosovska Mitrovica and the Republic Agency for Peaceful Settlement of Labor Disputes. On the occasion, an exceptionally well-attended forum "Peaceful Settlement of Labor Disputes" was held where, in addition to students, numerous teaching staff from the University of Priština temporarily seated in Kosovska Mitrovica attended.
The agreement was signed by the Dean of the Faculty of Law in Kosovska Mitrovica, Prof. Dr. Slobodanka Kovačević Perić and Director of the Republic Agency for Peaceful Settlement of Labor Disputes, Dr. Ivica Lazović.
The Agency Director, Dr. Ivica Lazović, thanked Prof. Dr. Slobodanka Kovačević Perić for her contribution to the promotion of the concept of peaceful settlement of labor disputes and on that occasion presented her with the Plaque of the Agency for exceptional long-term cooperation, under the extraordinary conditions under which this Faculty operates.
The Vice Chancellor of the University of Priština temporarily seated in Kosovska Mitrovica Prof. Dr. Vladimir Boranijašević and his associates organized a reception for the Agency Director, where they presented the situation and complex circumstances under which they operate at a commendable level. The importance of cross-institutional cooperation with various state bodies was also discussed in order to provide students with opportunities to gain practice and develop professionally. Further cooperation is planned in this direction,
Mr. Lazović also pointed out his pride in the fact that the legal mechanism for the peaceful settlement of labor disputes has also become operational in Kosovo and Metohija. Since its establishment until recently, the Agency did not have any conciliators and arbitrators in the areas of Kosovo and Metohija, and not a single procedure for the peaceful settlement of labor disputes was conducted. With some effort, in just two years that has been changed, and the Agency now has conciliators and arbitrators in Kosovo and Metohija, and the initial procedures for peaceful settlement of individual and collective labor disputes have been conducted. Cooperation with the University is important for all of the above.
The goal of the signed Agreement is to establish cooperation between the signatories, which will contribute to the development and improvement of the capacities of the Republic Agency for Peaceful Settlement of Labor Disputes and the Faculty of Law in Kosovska Mitrovica. By signing the agreement, opportunities have been created for additional training and professional practice for students of this Faculty, as well as conciliators and arbitrators of the Agency, and promotion of the concept of peaceful settlement of individual and collective labor disputes among students, as well as for the exchange of information and experiences, participation in the implementation of projects, organizing seminars and gatherings, and the development of publishing activities in areas of mutual interest.
