Despite the availability of information and the availability of contraception, as well as the right to an abortion that is guaranteed in most modern societies, countries face many cases of adolescent pregnancies. Pregnancy in the period of adolescence irreversibly changes the lives of minors. It has an influence on their health, their education, social life and their future as adults. Also, the families of the under-aged parents are directly affected by the consequences, disrupting the functionality of the family.</p> <p>In a wider sense, the health system and social functioning are burdened in their entirety. &nbsp;Therefore, it’s important to prevent adolescent pregnancies. Contraception is the primary protection against unwanted pregnancy and insufficient and inconsistent application of contraception, as well as the lack of information among young people about the available methods of contraception, can be one of the main causes of adolescent pregnancies. Integrated sexuality education for adolescents can be a great benefit to educate adolescents about risk factors of pregnancy in early life. The influence of parents is crucial in the prevention of adolescent pregnancy. This paper's intention is to analyses the current situation on this topic, through available indicators on birth rates, maternal and children mortality worldwide. Qualitative research conducted between the student (18-22), should give more information about the use of contraception between young people, their opinion about the importance of contraception… Important questions are: Are they well informed about contraception; are the contraception products available; Are they feel free enough to talk with their parents on those topics..etc.</p> <p><strong>Key words:</strong>&nbsp;<em>Adolescents, Pregnancy, Adolescent Pregnancy, Teenagers, Family, Contraception.</em></p> Makedonka RADULOVIC, Biljana TODOROVA, Irena AVIROVIC BUNDALEVSKA Copyright (c) 2020 Makedonka RADULOVIC, Biljana TODOROVA, Irena AVIROVIC BUNDALEVSKA https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/131 Tue, 21 Apr 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Reduction of Natural Disaster Risk Through Contingency Plan in Cilacap District http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/138 <p>Cilacap Regency is one of the areas that have the highest level of natural disaster vulnerability in Central Java. Various types of disasters have the opportunity to occur and have an impact on the entire region. To anticipate the impact of these potential natural disasters, the district government has issued a contingency plan to reduce the risk of disasters.</p> <p>This study aims to describe how to reduce the risk of natural disasters through contingency planning. The study uses a qualitative approach with the case study method. Data and information obtained through focus group discussions (FGD), interviews, and documentation studies. The informants were determined purposively, coming from elements of the government, private sector, and a community of 25 people.</p> <p>The results of the study illustrate that the role of contingency planning is very important to reduce disaster risk. The contingency plan document clearly contains various guidelines and technical steps taken by stakeholders in anticipating natural disasters. The guidelines for the action plan are supported by techniques that can be easily learned so that the stages of the process of how to anticipate natural disasters can be carried out by anyone. The implementation of a natural disaster risk reduction contingency plan in the Cilacap Regency received support from the implementer, the environment, resources, and disposition.</p> <p><strong>Key words:</strong> <em>Contingency Planning, Mitigation, Policy</em></p> Rudi SUBIYAKTO Copyright (c) 2020 Rudi SUBIYAKTO http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/138 Tue, 21 Apr 2020 00:00:00 +0000 The Right of Pledge on Movable items (Pignus) on Republic of Kosovo http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/139 <p>The pledge is an item right based on which its official holder – the pledgee may seek the payment of his/her claims from the item if those aren’t paid within certain time limit. The right of pledge in the Republic of Kosovo constitutes a complex occurrence which has various relations on which at one side is the pledgee creditor, and in the other side are debtor pledgor and other third persons. The role of pledge and its affirmation is related to most qualitative changes of claims.&nbsp; &nbsp;</p> <p>The right of pledge as item right in foreign item (iura in re aliena) makes a history only to a certain degree of economic and social development. In this degree of development there was a need and necessity to secure the other’s claims even de facto, by the hand item, by ”pledging” of an item. The creditor requires that his claims to the debtor be secured by obtaining of a pledge of debtor item. The debtor’s conjunction of creditor by obtaining debtor’s item is safer for the creditor to realize its claims, rather than when the debtor secured these claims by his/her personality, bail, personal insurance. In the Kosovo legal system there is possessory pledge, non-possessory pledge and the pledge over the rights.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Key word:</strong>&nbsp;<em>The Right of Pledge, Pignus, Mortgage, Pledge Object, Pledge Principles, Titles for Obtaining the Right of Pledge by the Hand Item.</em></p> Ekrem SALIHU Copyright (c) 2020 Ekrem SALIHU https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/139 Sat, 09 May 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Immaterial Damage and Some Types of its Compensation http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/142 <p>The purpose of any legal system is the regulation and harmonization of actions between people within their respective societies. Now in almost every thesis of this nature you will come across a reference to one of the principles on which the relationship between people should be constructed; the prohibition to cause damage to another, and in case of non-respecting this principle, as it happens in many cases for various reasons, the obligation of indemnity arises, that aims restoring of a situation which was prior to causing of the damage, and the realization of this target is in direct correlation with the nature of the damage caused, and in case of immaterial damage, it is almost unattainable, target, but that does not affect the need to compensate damages of such nature. The issue of immaterial damage compensation is one of the most controversial and current matters in the theory and judicial practice, and this not only because it includes the matters of protecting an &nbsp;individual, his rights to invulnerability as an individual, but even due to the fact&nbsp; that the lack of criteria for the assessment of immaterial damage, influenced to the reference on various criteria, thus creating a change in judicial practice, in regard to the amount of defined compensation for similar cases. This thesis addresses immaterial damage, in regard to its forms of presentation, and then the procedure of immaterial damage compensation and the criteria based on which are assessed; the nature and the extent of the caused damage for the effect of its compensation.</p> <p><strong>Key words:</strong>&nbsp;<em>Damage, Causing Damage, Material Damage, Immaterial Damage, Compensation </em><em>o</em><em>f Immaterial Damage, Criteria </em><em>f</em><em>or Compensation </em><em>o</em><em>f Immaterial Damage, Types </em><em>o</em><em>f Immaterial Damage.</em></p> Asmir SADIKU Copyright (c) 2020 Asmir SADIKU https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/142 Tue, 21 Apr 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Education Policies in Pre-University Education of the Republic of Kosovo for Non-Majority Communities of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/143 <p>The Republic of Kosovo is a country that observes all the rights and obligations of its subjects with no discrimination in national, racial, linguistic sense. Even though we have these rights in place, in practice the situation is different and not very positive. This is since the non-majority communities Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian in Kosovo face several problems in different areas, especially when it comes to their right on integration to education. This paper will address and evaluate current policies and legislation of Kosovo for inclusion in education as a condition for completion of the education system.</p> <p>This paper will be developed by considering the assessment of the Constitution and relevant legislation referring to the right to education for non-majority communities. Given all this legislation, it will be assessed in harmony with the practical problems that exist regarding access to the education system for non-majority communities. Therefore, this paper aims to bring innovation in this field of research aiming to identify how much the Republic of Kosovo is keeping a pace with the standards for inclusion in the education system, what are the reasons that in current state of play we do not have a satisfactory inclusion in the education by category of children from non-majority communities of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian in pre-university education.</p> <p><strong>Key wordS:</strong> <em>Inclusion, Children from Non-Majority Communities of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian, Education Policy, Pre-University Education.</em></p> Maliqe MULOLLI-JAHMURATAJ Copyright (c) 2020 Maliqe MULOLLI-JAHMURATAJ https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/143 Tue, 21 Apr 2020 00:00:00 +0000 The Effects of Political Parties on Women's Organization http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/121 <p>The aim of this research is to analyze statistics to understand the effect of political parties on women organizations and the obstacles they create for these organizations as they work for gaining their members’ rights. In the research, the quantitative method was used for collecting data, using a questioner. The research participants were chosen through snowball sampling in Erbil Governorate. The size of the sampling was 195 persons that their level of education was different. For analyzing the collected data SPSS software was used. The findings show that politics to a very low extent were obstacles for women’s organization and thus these organizations were unable to effectively operate in obtaining their members’ rights. The results also show that women themselves were unable to play an effective role for gaining their rights. In addition, the findings show that not having their own sources of finance makes women’s organizations depend on political parties.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Key words:</strong> <em>Women’s Organizations, Political Parties, Radical Feminist, Liberal Feminist.</em></p> Dilshad SABRI ALI Copyright (c) 2020 Dilshad SABRI ALI http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/121 Fri, 10 Apr 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Psychometric Properties of the Georgian Version of the Grit Scale http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/128 <p>The concept of grit refers to an individual’s tendency to keep perseverance and passion for long-term goals despite setbacks or obstacles.

Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) plays a very important role in the economic development of Kosovo which is in the process of transition. For Kosovo, it is essential to have an accelerated pace of economic growth, lower unemployment, higher quality of life, lower demographic migration and lower poverty rates, thus attracting FDI has a direct and very important role to play. Although Kosovo has a large number of advantages for attracting foreign investment, there are also a number of challenges or disadvantages that are very evident which negatively impact on current and potential investors in the future. Based on the data analysis, the overall trend of FDI has declined in recent years, therefore it is very important for Kosovo to develop further steps to improve the business climate in Kosovo and attract foreign investments.</p> <p>The purpose of this paper is to analyze the performance of FDI in Kosovo 2008-2019, to analyze the advantages and disadvantages of doing business in Kosovo, to identify where Kosovo stands in terms of doing business and what is new for Kosovo in a way that improve the business environment and attract foreign investment. To achieve this goal of comparative analysis and identification, the integrative review method was used.&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Key words:</strong><em> Republic of Kosovo, Direct Foreign investments, Business environment, Economic Development, Doing Business.</em></p> Getoar LUBENIQI Copyright (c) 2020 Getoar LUBENIQI https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/132 Fri, 10 Apr 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Hexa Helix: Stakeholder Model in the Management of Floodplain of Lake Tempe http://prizrenjournal.com/index.php/PSSJ/article/view/141 <p>The main problem in the management of the floodplain of Lake Tempe is the weak involvement of affected communities in disaster management. The purpose of this research is to comprehensively analyze and map stakeholders in managing floodplain. The penta helix concept is used in stakeholder mapping. This research applied mixed methods, qualitative and quantitative. Data collection was done through in-depth interviews with various parties who understand the problem of research and direct observation "pre", "whilst", and "post" a disaster occured. Affected communities are found to be an important part of the disaster management stage. Affected communities, who have been the object of disaster, should be the subject of disaster management. The recommendation for the results of this research is that the concept of five stakeholders in penta helix was ​​not sufficient in disaster management. Affected communities deserve to be placed as one of the stakeholders, in addition to the government, business world, universities, NGOs, mass media. This six-stakeholder concept is called "hexa helix". </p> <p><strong>Key words: </strong><em>Stakeholders Mapping, Penta Helix, Flood Disaster Management, Lake Tempe.</em></p> Abd.
