The President of Kosovo, Dr. Vjosa Osmani-Sadriu, visited the University of Calabria in Italy, where she gave a lecture on the democratization and state-building of Kosovo. She was accompanied by the Kosovo Ambassador to Italy, Lendita Haxhitasim, who graduated in political science from the University of Calabria. The President visited the campus and met with the university's leadership before visiting the library to see the Albanian special collections. During her lecture, she highlighted the progress made by Kosovo in areas such as transparency, respect for minorities, and gender equality. The President emphasized the importance of education and studying abroad in the state-building process and expressed her willingness to work with the University of Calabria in the future. The University of Calabria has a special and longstanding relationship with Kosovo, dating back to the 1970s when students were sent to Kosovo to participate in a summer school of Albanian language. The two institutions signed a cooperation agreement in 2021, and they both join the EUPeace Alliance.
