Atifete Jahjaga (Albanian pronunciation: [ätɪˈfeːtɛ jähˈjɑːɡä]; born 20 April 1975) is a Kosovar politician and the fourth President of Kosovo.[a] She is the first female President of the Republic of Kosovo, the first non-partisan candidate, the only female head of state in the modern Balkans and the youngest to be elected to the top office. She served as Deputy Director of the Kosovo Police,[1] holding the rank of Major General,[2] the most senior among women officers in Southeastern Europe.[3]

Early life and education[edit]

Atifete Jahjaga was born in Gjakova, Kosovo, then a part of Yugoslavia, where she attended her elementary and secondary schools. She graduated from the University of Prishtina at the Faculty of Law in 2000. In 2006/07, she completed a graduate certificate program in police management and criminal law at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom. She has also received extensive professional training at the George C. Marshall European Centre for Security Studies in Germany and the FBI National Academy in the United States of America.

Police career[edit]

After the Kosovo War, Jahjaga completed Kosovo's Police Academy to become an officer and was gradually promoted to higher ranks, initially a major, then colonel, and finally major general, giving her contribution in building Kosovo's most trusted law enforcement institution.

Jahjaga held the position of the Deputy Director of the Kosovo Police, and briefly filled in as acting General Director in 2010. While serving in the Kosovo Police, she drew the attention of American officers and diplomats who presented her before senior U.S. officials on special occasions as a representative of a new generation of Kosovar civil servants. Her pictures with U.S. President George W. Bush during his visit to the FBI National Academy and with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her visit to Kosovo were among the few distributed through the internet before she was placed on the national spotlight as a presidential candidate.

President of Kosovo[edit]

Following a political crisis that engulfed Kosovo with the resignation of President Fatmir Sejdiu and the Constitutional Court decision that ruled against the election of Behxhet Pacolli as the President of Kosovo, on 6 April 2011, she was announced as a consensus candidate for President of Kosovo of the Democratic Party of Kosovo, Democratic League of Kosovo and New Kosovo Alliance,[4] and supported by the US Ambassador in Kosovo, Christopher Dell.[5][6] Although she enjoyed a positive reputation as a police commander, she came out of relative obscurity as a candidate for the highest office of the state, with most of the public and political leaders unaware of her political leanings.

On 7 April, Jahjaga was elected President on the first round of voting by the Parliament; of 100 MPs present, 80 voted for Jahjaga and 10 cast a ballot for Suzan Novoberdali.[7] To date, she is the only president to be elected on the first round of voting. Only Kosovo's 1st President Ibrahim Rugova has received more votes, being appointed by the Parliament by an 88-3 vote in 2002,[8] in the third round of voting.

In her inaugural address, Jahjaga stated that her main goal as the President is to put Kosovo on a safe path toward membership into the European Union and the United Nations. "The ideal of all Kosovo is membership in the EU and a permanent friendship with the United States. I believe and I am convinced our dreams will come true," she said in her first speech to the Parliament.[9]

Presidency[edit]

Country image building[edit]

Since taking office in April 2011, President Jahjaga has sought to strengthen the democratic institutions of the country and has helped to build and to secure greater international recognition for Kosovo. Jahjaga has contributed to changing Kosovo’s image abroad,[10] promoting European and Euro-Atlantic agenda, reconciliation and tolerance, normalization of relations with neighboring countries,[11] and attracting foreign investment.[12] She has redefined the role of the President in building pluralistic and democratic life of Kosovo, and continuously implemented the constitutional principles that form the basis of democracy.[13] Through her participation in various international forums and numerous bilateral visits, Jahjaga has created new bridges of cooperation and gave her country a voice internationally by sharing Kosovo's state-building experience and making it a vital contributor in global debates.[14] President Jahjaga's vision and her moderate leadership in Kosovo and the Western Balkans has secured her unprecedented international support.[15]

Constitutional leadership[edit]

President Jahjaga actively enforces her constitutional duties and opposes legislation that contradicts European Union practices and standards. According to the European Commission Progress Report, her enforcement of checks and balances demonstrated that there is separation of powers in Kosovo presently.[16]

In 2012, President Jahjaga sent back to the Parliament of Kosovo the Criminal Code for reconsideration, demanding the removal of provisions pertaining to freedom of expression, namely the criminalization of defamation and articles that would compel journalists to reveal their sources.[17] Jahjaga deemed the measures in contradiction to freedom of expression, Constitution of the Republic of Kosovo and the European Convention on Human Rights.[18]

During local elections of 2013 and early general elections of 2014, she successfully coordinated and mobilized mechanisms of justice and the Central Election Commission for a fair, democratic and transparent electoral process, following Kosovo's rigged general elections in 2010 that drew much concern about the legitimacy of Kosovo's institutions and criticism from international organizations.[19] Due to the efforts led by Jahjaga to ensure a democratic process, according to international monitors, the elections of 2013 and 2014 were fair and inclusive, drawing to the ballot boxes for the first time the citizens of Serb municipalities in the north of the country.[20]

President Jahjaga and US Secretary of State Clinton

Following the June elections of 2014, Kosovo was paralyzed by a political and constitutional deadlock which prevented the formation of institutions and undermined the country's democratic functioning.[21] In an effort to find solution to the political impasse, President Jahjaga began intensive meetings with leaders of parliamentary political parties in finding the formula for the establishment of the new Parliament and formation of the Government.[22] Jahjaga played a crucial role in resolving the crisis, ensuring democratic functioning of institutions through a credible, transparent and inclusive process, in full respect of the constitutional court decisions and legal procedures. U.S. President Barack Obama, on the occasion of Kosovo's Independence Day, congratulated Jahjaga for her "leadership and resolve in working with party leaders during the extended government-formation process."[23]

Immediately after the formation of the government, in coordination with the Speaker of the Parliament, Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Justice, Jahjaga reached institutional consensus on the establishment of the Special Court as an international obligation stemming from the exchange of letters between President Jahjaga and EU High Representative Baroness Ashton.[24] The exchange of letters was approved with broad support of 87 votes in the Assembly of Kosovo. President Jahjaga during this process held regular meetings with opposition leaders, civil society and media to ensure transparency and to seek wider consensus on a national issue.[25]

Determined to reach broader consensus on national agenda, Jahjaga established three National Councils during her mandate to ensure the inclusion of civil society, academia and business community.[26] She spent much of her time in office meeting with representatives of civil society, ethnic communities and marginalized groups.

European integration process[edit]

President Jahjaga is very active in promoting the EU integration agenda of her country.[27] In March 2012, she inaugurated the National Council for European Integration, a high level coordination body with the aim to build consensus on European agenda through an inclusive and cross-party approach.[27] At its first meeting, President Jahjaga and EU Commissioner for Enlargement, Stefan Fule, launched the Feasibility Study for Stabilisation and Association Agreement between the Republic of Kosovo and the European Union.[28] In 2013, the National Council adopted the first Kosovo National Strategy for European Integration, ensuring consensus with all Kosovar society actors involved in the process.[29]

Jahjaga has consistently helped coordinate institutions efficiently and to accelerate the implementation of technical criteria as part of the Dialogue on visa liberalization with the European Union. In 2015, in coordination with other institutions, Jahjaga requested that all technical criteria to be completed by May 2015.[30] A month later, Kosovo presented to the the European Commission its final report on the fulfillment of the visa liberalization road map.[31]

In early 2015, during the great wave of illegal migration of Kosovo citizens to western Europe, Jahjaga was the only leader who visited Kosovo municipalities affected by migration in order to speak with citizens about their concerns.[32] Many European officials have commended Jahjaga for her personal engagement to establish direct dialogue with citizens and her key role in stopping the flow of the citizens of Kosovo to Western Europe.[33]

Rule of Law[edit]

President Jahjaga established the National Anti Corruption Council on February 14, 2012. The Council is a coordinating body that aims to coordinate the work and the activities of the institutions and independent agencies, to prevent and fight corruption. The Council is composed from representatives from different institutions and agencies and has become the key forum between these interlocutors.[16] As the President guarantees the constitutional functioning of the institutions, Jahjaga has continuously sought to promote an independent and impartial justice system.[34]

During the prolonged process of appointment of the State Prosecutor, the delays by the Prosecutorial Council, the decision of the Constitutional Court,[35] as well as efforts to influence the process,[36] President Jahjaga ensured a transparent and credible process acting on defined timelines and legal and constitutional procedures.[37]

Jahjaga has also reformed the law on pardon by strengthening criteria and procedures for granting pardon to convicted persons. The new law rejects the practices of previous Presidents who have pardoned prisoners serving sentences for serious crimes.[38] In order to ensure transparency and strengthen the rule of law, Jahjaga has pardoned a very small number of prisoners whereas in 2015 none. Ministry of Justice and the Council of Prisoners Strikers often criticized Jahjaga's decision to pardon a small number of prisoners who have committed lesser offenses.[39]

Combating violent extremism and radicalization[edit]

During the political deadlock of 2014, Kosovo was increasingly threatened by violent extremism as the number of Kosovo citizens joining the terrorist groups in the Middle East as foreign fighters was growing.[40] Determined to stamp the flow of foreign fighters and address the security challenge they posed, President Jahjaga successfully led security mechanisms in the fight against violent extremism and radicalization, by turning Kosovo into an international example how to address a common challenge to national security.[41][42][43]

In acknowledgement of her efforts, US President Obama invited President Jahjaga to attend the extraordinary session of the UN Security Council in September 2014, where the resolution was adopted to combat violent extremism and radicalization.[44] President Jahjaga also had an important role in the adoption of the law to prevent citizens joining armed conflicts abroad, decreed on March 23, 2015,[45] and measures for preventing the activities, organization and any radical and extremist activity in Kosovo. The United States[46] and European Union have continuously praised Jahjaga for Kosovo's support for the international coalition against the Islamic State and strong commitment to combat terrorism and violent extremism.[46]

Attracting foreign investments[edit]

Jahjaga has been constantly engaged in creating new partnerships for Kosovo and attracting more foreign investments.[47] In Kosovo, she called for a partnership and coordination of government and private sector to improve good business practices that would make Kosovo attractive to foreign investment.[48] In 2015, Jahjaga reached agreement on economic cooperation with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as well as interagency group established for concrete investment projects between Kosovo and the UAE.[12]

President Jahjaga signed a 22 million euro donation of by Sheikha Bint Mubarak of United Arab Emirates for a Pediatric Surgical Hospital building within the University Clinical Center of Kosovo.[49]

Women's empowerment[edit]

Under her leadership, women's role in Kosovo has advanced. In 2012, she hosted an International Women’s Summit "Partnership for Change—Empowering Women," which was attended by 200 leaders from Kosovo, wider Europe, North America, Africa and the Middle East. The summit was a good opportunity for women from the region to cross the ethnic barriers and come together to launch and promote a platform for their empowerment throughout the Balkans. The discussions led to creation of the Pristina Principles, which affirm the rights of women to political participation and representation, economic resources and access to security and justice, and calls for actions to make these principles a reality.[50]

Since May 2012, President Jahjaga is a member of the Council of Women World Leaders.[51] She is invited and constantly participates in global conferences to strengthen the role of women in society. Jahjaga promoted around the world the commitment to an equal society, with the active participation of women, becoming an advocate for women representation in all walks of life and a strong voice of women's role in survival, professionalism and peace-building.

Reconciliation and tolerance[edit]

President Jahjaga has worked hard to build bridges between Kosovo's various ethnic communities. She has been active in interfaith dialogue and has continuously reached out to minority communities in Kosovo. In 2013, the President visited the Serb Orthodox Monastery of Dečani and its clergy for the celebration of Easter, calling on all the citizens of Kosovo to continue to cultivate the inter-religious tolerance that has prevailed in the country.[52]

President leads the Consultative Council for Communities. The Council has made a number of recommendations pertaining to the empowerment of communities in various fields like education, economic development, employment, social and other issues. The council has repeatedly opposed the discriminatory policies towards communities.

Preventing Sexual Violence in Conflict[edit]

President Jahjaga has led institutional efforts to rehabilitate and reintegrate survivors of sexual violence during the conflict. In March 2014, President Jahjaga established the National Council for survivors of sexual violence during the war in Kosovo, a coordinating body consisting of representatives of key ministries, civil society and international partners, to provide legal remedies to survivors of sexual violence during war.[53]

Under the patronage of President Jahjaga, in June 2015, Kosovo-born artist Alketa Xhafa-Mripa organized in Prishtina an artistic installation "Thinking of you" to increase awareness and provide support to the survivors of this war crime. Thousands in Kosovo and abroad responded to the President's call to donate dresses in a sign of solidarity with survivors of sexual violence during the war. The echo of this work of art exceeded Kosovo, becoming a rallying cry to bring to an end this practice and seek justice for the victims.[54] The event gained worldwide attention and was covered by all major world media, including the New York Times, Washington Post, The Guardian and dozens of international television.

Office of the President of Kosovo[edit]

As the first consensual and non-partisan President in history of independent Kosovo, Jahjaga was focused on de-politicization of the Office of the President which is open to all citizens and political parties. The role of the President is conceived as unique role in inter-institutional coordination which increases transparency and the effectiveness of the institutions to fulfill their mandate, and at the same time maintaining the constitutional separation of powers.[55] Unlike many politicians of the country, Jahjaga lives a modest lifestyle. She is known for full respect for the law, and pays special care to public spending. She and her cabinet have been singled out by the Anti-Corruption Agency as the best example of transparency and accountability that public officials should demonstrate. Jahjaga's Cabinet of Advisers consists of non-partisan and experienced professionals, educated at some of the best U.S. and European universities.[56]
