About Us

Founded in 1982, Search for Common Ground works to transform the way the world deals with conflict - away from adversarial approaches and towards collaborative problem solving. We work with local partners to find culturally appropriate means to strengthen societies' capacity to deal with conflicts constructively: to understand the differences and act on the commonalities.

Using innovative tools and working at different levels of society, SFCG engages in a pragmatic long-term process of conflict transformation. Our toolbox includes media production – radio, TV, film and print - mediation and facilitation, training, community organizing, sports, drama and music. We promote both individual and institutional change and are committed to measuring the results of our work. We strive to constantly increase our effectiveness through monitoring and facilitated learning.

In its episodic court drama Inside Justice, Search for Common Ground has merged the global appeal of court drama series with messages aimed to promote trust and to demand informed accountability to help transform social attitudes about the justice system in Kosovo, ant the values of the rule of law in general. The television series addresses the very real issues facing the society such as equal access to justivre, rights and responsibilities of the citizens, promotion of efforts to improve the efficiency of the justice system etc.

Inside Justice was produced during 2009-2010. More than 150 people were involved in the making of the series, filmed on location throughout Kosovo. Comprised of 15 forty-minutes episodes, the series takes cameras into the courtroom, with each episode covering different criminal and civil legal cases. Through out the series, we meet ordinary men and women, caught in emotional situations, who want to make the unjust turn right.

The series is directed by the briliant Fatos Berisha and Ilir Bokshi. The theme and musical score was composed especially for the series by Ilir Bajri.
The actors clearly love what they play as we can see through the riveting performances of stars: Dibran Tahiri, Skumrije Hoxha, Astrit Kabashi, Luan Jaha, Hazir Myftari, Gresa Palaska, Ilir Qelaj, Lirak Qelaj, Albulena Kryeziu, Cun Lajci, Arta Mucaj, Xhejlane Godanci, Ilir Prapashtica, Ylka Gashi and many more talented actors and actresses in Kosovo.

Talented screenwriters Doruntina Basha, Visar Krusha and Ilir Gjocaj wrote the screenplays for the series which is as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.
Inside Jusice is funded and produced by USAID. The series premiered on the national TV RTK, and so far it was broadcast on TV Alsat –M with Macedonian subtitles (2009, 2010), TV Mir with Serbian subtitles (2009, 2010), TV Tema (2009, 2010), TV Syri Vision (2009, 2010), TV Dukagjini (2009, 2010),TV Opinion (2010), TV Besa (2009), TV Vali (2009).
