A role playing exercise to better understand poverty in Kosovo was recently organized by the UN Team in the territory.

According to the UN, around 30 per cent of people in Kosovo live below the poverty line, with some 10 per cent living in extreme poverty.

To highlight and address the situation, one of the activities was a "power walk" involving role-playing.

Journalists, politicians and representatives of civil society were given cards describing their new persona, and had to follow directions.
