The aim of this research paper is to elaborate the issue of the ethics code of Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in Kosovo. This paper initially elaborates a brief history regarding the establishment of NGOs in Kosovo, afterwards, the main topic, deals with the question: Do all NGOs have the ethics code, if no, who is to blame? In order to gather information related to this topic, a qualitative research methodology was used. Descriptive and analytical method was used to arrive at the conclusion of this topic. All the data were gained from official websites and from authorized officials of NGOs and official governmental institutions such as Ministry of Public Administration. The major finding of this research is giving answer to the above mentioned question, and the answer is: No, not all NGOs in Kosovo have the ethics code and nobody monitors them or asks from them responsibility for that. Since there is not any kind of supervision, not having the Ethics Code seems to be the negligence of the higher institutions.
