Description

At the beginning of the XXI century, the life started to be very dynamic in Kosovo with emphasis on large urban centers. Ruined houses started to be reconstructed, new houses were built, and small and medium enterprises were established, as well as new institutions. Thus, the migration of population simultaneously occurred from small urban centers and rural areas to large urban centers, and developments were particularly focused in Prishtina. The growth of urban population in Prishtina happened for many reasons, but I will mention the most important ones such as: Establishment of the entire central administration, public/private universities and health institutions, as well as international headquarters, the concentration of economic business, etc., which enabled better chances for education and employment. Given such a whole urban population in Prishtina, many institutions were unprepared - without urban conditions to cope with the influx of population.

Urbanization and Socio-Urban Developments in Prishtina in Post-Conflict period

Durres, Albania

At the beginning of the XXI century, the life started to be very dynamic in Kosovo with emphasis on large urban centers.

The growth of urban population in Prishtina happened for many reasons, but I will mention the most important ones such as: Establishment of the entire central administration, public/private universities and health institutions, as well as international headquarters, the concentration of economic business, etc., which enabled better chances for education and employment.
