ICG has been active in Kosovo since late 1997. ICG's initial Kosovo reports outlined the human rights abuses incurred while the former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic struggled to control the province, assessed the 1999 NATO air campaign, and analysed the subsequent efforts of the United Nations and KFOR troops to implement Security Council Resolution 1244.
A team of three analysts, based in Pristina, is currently focused on the consolidation of the peace process. They are examining issues such as the legal status of Kosovo; the transition from United Nations control to local self-government; the creation of a judicial system and efforts to entrench the rule of law; the return of displaced people to their homes and the struggle to create a secure environment for all communities; economic development and the privatization process; and the future role of international bodies, in particular the EU, in the province.
