Qëndrim Gashi

Spring 2023

In the 21st century, established democracies around the world are being challenged. What can leaders of one of the world’s newest democracies teach us about building and maintaining democracy? Dr. Qëndrim Gashi’s series will focus on democracy development in Europe’s youngest country, the Republic of Kosovo.

He has served in supervisory boards of various private and state institutions and think tanks and has won a number of scholarships, awards and honors, including receiving the insignia of Commander of the French Legion of Honor in 2022. Educated at the University of Chicago (PhD 2008), the University of Cambridge (MA St 2003), and the University of Prishtina (Diploma 2002), he has given talks at many universities, was the founder and first President (2008-2012) of the Kosovar Mathematical Society, and since April 2022 also serves as the Kosovo American Education Fund Development Manager.
