Veton Surroi to Lecture on Kosovo’s Pursuit of Independence
Veton Surroi, a member of Kosovo Negotiating Team, will deliver a Dean's Lecture on Wednesday, October 3, at Yale Law School titled “Kosovo: In Pursuit of Independence.” The lecture will be held at 5:00 p.m. in Room 129. A reception will follow in the Alumni Reading Room.
“Mr. Surroi will join us following the first meeting of Kosovo and Serbian leaders at the United Nations on September 28, held amid bitter divisions between the United States and Russia over Kosovo’s future,” said Dean Harold Hongju Koh. “He is a brilliant, passionate and fluent speaker, and I strongly urge people to come to hear him.”
Veton Surroi is a member of the Kosovo Assembly and founding chairman of the Reformist Party ORA. He is one of the four members of the Unity Team, a bipartisan body established by the President of Kosovo to conduct negotiations to conclude Kosovo’s final status. He is the founder and publisher of Koha Ditore, Kosovo's leading daily newspaper.
A graduate of the Faculty of Philosophy and Literature of the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Mexico, Surroi is recipient of the International Federation of Journalists Annual Award for Journalism, National Endowment for Democracy Award for Democracy, and the Geunzen Award for Freedom. He is the author of numerous articles and books published in Kosovo and abroad.
