Kosovo is a parliamentary republic. It declared independence on February 17, 2008 and is recognized as an independent country by more than 100 United Nations members and by 23 out of 28 members of the European Union. 

Although Kosovo’s economic growth has outperformed its neighbours in the past decade and has been largely inclusive, it has not been sufficient to provide enough formal jobs, particularly for women and youth, or to significantly reduce the high rates of unemployment. (World Bank, 2020)
