The history of Kosovo is a complicated one which typifies the darker side of modern Balkan history. Milosevic s Serbia withdrew from Kosovo in 1999 and the province was handed over to a special UN body who governed until 2008, when the West allowed Kosovo to become independent. The aim was to erect a stable and well governed democracy, but the outcome was a fragile state, which still threatens the stability of the Balkans and Europe s internal security. How did this happen? Here, Andrea Lorenzo Capussela offers an inside look at the process of building democracy in Kosovo. As head of the economics unit of Kosovo s international supervisor, Capussela has had access to previously unknown sources and information regarding the roles of the EU and the US in the crisis. This will be an essential reading for those studying the Kosovo crisis. The EU s mission in Kosovo is ensnared by corruption claims. Andrea Capussela says that Eulex [the EU rule of law mission in Kosovo] has proved craven, passive and fearful of taking on Kosovo s elite. - The Economist The European Union s 1bn flagship foreign mission to combat organised crime and corruption in Kosovo repeatedly shunned or dropped investigations of cases implicating senior Kosovan politicians, according to a new study of the mission s six-year existence.' - Guardian Capussela studied the results achieved by Eulex. According to his conclusions of the 15 most important cases opened by the mission only four led to convictions, of which three involve lowlevel figures these are gravely insufficient results, considering how widespread corruption and organized crime are in Kosovo. - Le Monde".

Kosovo today, more than eleven years after the war, is still a fragile and unfinished state enjoying only limited sovereignty while continuing to be divided into a Serb north and an Albanian dominated south. All the important dimensions of society in Kosovo remain critical and highly unstable. While the security situation in the country, except the North, has considerably improved, the living conditions of the Kosovar population are still in a dismal state. Corruption and organized crime continue to block the development of a viable state, an efficient bureaucracy, and a democratic political culture. This book systematically analyzes and describes the relevant developments in Kosovar society since the end of the war and investigates how successfully peace has been established in Kosovo.

This book examines international engagement with Kosovo since NATO's intervention in 1999, and looks at the three distinct phases of Kosovo's development; intervention, statebuilding and independence. Kosovo remains a case study of central importance in international relations, illustrative of key political trends in the post-Cold War era. During each phase, international policy towards Kosovo has challenged prevailing international norms and pushed the boundaries of conventional wisdom. In each of the three phases 'Kosovo' has been cited as constituting a precedent, and this book explores the impact and the often troubling consequences and implications of these precedents. This book explicitly engages with this debate, which transcends Kosovo itself, and provides a critical analysis of the catalysts and consequences of contemporary international engagement with this seminal case study. Each chapter focuses on a particular aspect of the international engagement with Kosovo and situates events there in an international context, highlighting the extent to which international policy towards Kosovo has challenged existing norms and practices. Kosovo has been cited in certain texts as a positive template to be emulated, but the contributors to this book also identify the often controversial and contentious nature of these new norms. This book will be of much interest to students of humanitarian intervention and statebuilding, war and conflict studies, security studies and IR in general. Aidan Hehir is a Senior Lecturer in International Relations at the Department of Politics and International Relations, University of Westminster.

"This book analyzes the EU's largest ever Common Security and Defence Policy civilian mission (EU-LEX). It is the biggest state-building commitment in Kosovo with a focus on the judicial field (rule of law). This choice is based on two main premises: to look at both strengths and weaknesses of a policy (CSDP) established sixteen years ago, while questioning whether in its current setup it is working appropriately in high-ethnic politicized settings like Kosovo, or if alternative measures are to be considered. Based on Alex Bellamy's critical approach theory, this research shows the limits third-part interventions face at enabling both local ownership and multiethnicity in high-divided societies. Far from pretending to be exhaustive, this contribution positions itself in the current debates on state-building enterprises with a view to providing for a comprehensive approach, while focusing on EU-LEX as a case-study and leaving room for suggestions and recommendations."-- Back cover.
