President Atifete Jahjaga spoke at the EU Information and Cultural Centre (EUICC) in Pristina on October 26, 2016 about the importance of giving voice to survivors of violence in Kosovo through legal mechanisms and awareness as part of the EU Master Class Series. “The memory of the green field of the Pristina Stadium covered with 5,000 dresses on Liberation Day, 12 June 2015, will always be in my memory,” said President Jahjaga recalling the day of art installation where victims of wartime sexual violence were recognized. At the event, President Jahjaga highlighted the work of the National Council for Survivors of Sexual Violence, established during her presidency in 2014. “Besides the pain I felt, the whole event gave me also a lot of hope as I was witnessing a great act of solidarity which came not only from Kosovo, but also from abroad by answering the call from artist Alketa Xhafa Mripa to donate a dress in support of war victims of sexual violence.” she continued.
