A Roma woman begging on the streets of Prizren.
Beggars are often used by cryminal gangs to generate income. 19.07.2011.
The photo exhibition in Prishtina was held on 2 May 2012 in the National Library of Kosovo, and will be displayed in exhibition in Brussels.
It is my pleasure to introduce this wonderful selection of photographs on the theme: "Lens on the law: the right and the wrong". There are thirty photographs in total, depiciting positive and negative aspects of the rule of law in Kosovo today.
The photographs, take by professional and non-professional photographers, are winning entries in a competition organised by EULEX and held across Kosovo.
In a sense, they represent the goog, the bad and the ugly. In short, they represent the truth.
I would like to commend the photographers for their skill in capturing these moments.
Each picture tells a story in itself. What is clear for everyone is that rule of law is central to everyone`s life, that without rule of law there is no modern society.
Rule of law is still developing in Kosovo.Thesephotographs display this in the mos visual way possible.
I would like to thank the people of Kosovo, from all communities and all backgrounds, for their contributions to this book and for their continuing desire and ambition to built and strengthten the rule of law here, for now, and for the future.
