Series:Südosteuropäische Arbeiten 148
Aims and Scope
This volume examines the process of nation building in Kosovo, which began well before the 1998–1999 war, and reflects a laborious process of political democratization in post-war society since 1999. It reveals successes and problems associated with outsiders setting targets for nation building and democracy, and internal tensions between ‘European’ and ‘American’ approaches to ideas about the future of Kosovo’s society.
