Civil society activist
Works at EC Ma Ndryshe, a community based civil society organization in Kosovo that promotes sustainable and inclusive city planning and development and local democracy. He holds a master degree on local governance and development. Hajrulla has over 15 years of experience in civil society and has published extensively on governance, activism and cultural heritage. EC's advocacy and watchdog work has improved transparency and accountability practices in a number of Kosovo municipalities. Through its grassroots activism, the organization has successfully reclaimed public and cultural spaces in Prizren, turning them into community facilities that are utilized for public benefit purposes. EC has greatly contributed in consolidating the legal and institutional practices for the safeguarding of cultural heritage of Kosovo, bringing cases of heritage destruction and illegal construction into judicial instances. One of the distinct approaches of EC for city planning is community design, which brings residents of urban neighborhoods and underserved community groups at the core of urban planning and development.
