Novitet Xh. Nezaj works currently as a Senior Legal Officer for EU legislation in the Government of the Republic of Kosovo. He is graduate lawyer, LLB from the University of Prishtina, Kosovo (2004). Since 2009, he is engaged in the area of the adaptation of the domestic law of Kosovo with EU and International law. Novitet holds two master degrees: M.A. in Public Policy and Administration from the American University in Kosovo in partnership with the Rochester Institute of Technology in NY, USA (2011), and M.E.S in European Studies/EU Law from the Europa-Kolleg Hamburg/University of Hamburg, Germany (2008).

Novitet’s academic research areas are international comparative and constitutional law, European Union law, International jurisprudence and legal theory.
At the Institute of European Integration, Novitet’s research will examine the extent to which it is possible to identify a coherent legal method that must be applied when analyzing incorporation of the Stabilization and Association Agreement into domestic legal order in Kosovo:
“Kosovo is currently going through some highly significant moments for its future and in the next years, entirely new perspectives will be opened to the country. I have examined the Institute for European Integration/Europa-Kolleg Hamburg, and feel that this institute is tailored to my academic and professional goals because of the vast academic library it offers in EU and International law. In addition, professors are in firm position to offer tremendous potential that focuses on European legal norm’s application and their networks with domestic laws of national legal system.”
