What Future for Kosovo ?

2006 is the year in which the final status of Kosovo is to be decided. Direct talks have begun between Belgrade and Prishtina to work towards a negotiated settlement covering aspects ranging from the protection of cultural heritage to local government reform which should empower Kosovo-Serb majority municipalities. Independence for the territory, however, seems to be a foregone conclusion.

German Law Journal’s November issue (Vol. 7, No. 11) will focus on a number of international legal issues connected with the final status determination of Kosovo, such as the legal capacity of the Security Council to impose territorial boundaries absent a negotiated settlement, the implications of Kosovo’s independence for the future of the law of self-determination, as well as problems related to the legitimacy of ‘guided sovereignty’.
