Our work in Kosovo

In Kosovo, the ICRC, in an effort to resolve the issue of missing persons, primarily supports families in their quest to ascertain the fate and whereabouts of their missing relatives. Implementing our humanitarian mandate, we remind the national authorities of their obligation to provide answers to the families, and we seek the support of the international community to achieve results. 

The ICRC supports Red Cross structures in Kosovo with training, funding and technical assistance. We also conduct visits to all places of detention in Kosovo.
