Joint Interim Administrative Structure


Joint Interim Administrative Structure

The Joint Interim Administrative Structure (JIAS) was an interim administrative body in Kosovo, established in May 2000 by the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). The JIAS was replaced by Provisional Institutions of Self-Government (PISG) in 2001 following Kosovo wide elections to the new institutions.

The JIAS was divided into the following branches [cite web | title = UNMIK at 18 — Joint Interim Administrative Structure (JIAS) | url=http://www.unmikonline.org/1styear/jias.ht | accessdate = 2008-02-23 | year = 2008 ] :

*Interim Administrative Council — a "cabinet-style" body to advise the SRSG on policies relating to the other JIAS bodies. It was composed of 8 members, 4 nominated by the United Nations, 3 representatives of Kosovo Albanians and 1 representative of Kosovo Serbs. The Kosovo Albanian representatives were Ibrahim Rugova, Hashim Thaci and Rexhep Qosja. The Serb member, Rada Trajkovic, represented the Serbian National Council for Kosovo And Metohija and only participated as an observer.

The SRSG served as the non-voting chairman.

*Kosovo Transitional Council — a 35-member "legislature style" advisory body to represent the views of Kosovo stakeholder groups [cite web | title = UNMIK at 18 — Joint Interim Administrative Structure (JIAS) | url=http://www.unmikonline.org/1styear/ktc.ht | accessdate = 2008-02-23 | year = 2008 ] . These groups included polital parties, religious organizations, national minorities and groups representing civil society. The council had powers of scrutiny over the Kosovo administrative departments.

*Administrative departments — 19 administrative departments were established during 2000 and each was co-headed by an Unmik co-head and a Kosovo co-head [cite web | title = UNMIK at 18 - Joint Interim Administrative Structure (JIAS) | url=http://www.unmikonline.org/1styear/jiasdept.ht | accessdate = 2008-02-23 | year = 2008 ] . These departments continued following the transition to the PISG.
