Project Overview

Reports Index

ICG has been active in Kosovo since late 1997, when it started following up advance warnings of impending crisis. As the conflict unfolded in the province, ICG issued a series of reports cataloguing events and analysing the strategies of key players in Kosovo and the Belgrade regime. ICG also provided a detailed assessment of the NATO air campaign against Yugoslavia and the peace agreement hammered out in June 1999. A team of three analysts is currently based in Pristina, reporting on the peace process and efforts to defuse tensions, establish the rule of law and create a functioning system of self-government.

ICG's most recent reports on Kosovo are:

  • Reaction in Kosovo to Kostunica's Victory (10 October 2000), a briefing paper highlighting the radicalisation, in the wake of Kostunica's election, of Kosovo Albanian opinion on issues such as cooperation with the international community and Kosovo's future status;

  • Kosovo Report Card (29 August 2000), a fresh evaluation of the international community's performance in Kosovo since the end of the conflict in June 1999, highlighting the urgent need to address the question of Kosovo's final status;

  • Elections in Kosovo: Moving Toward Democracy? (7 July 2000), an assessment of progress made to date toward Kosovo's first democratic, internationally supervised local elections scheduled for the autumn of 2000;

  • Reality Demands (27 June 2000), a report documenting humanitarian law violations committed in Kosovo during 1999;

  • Kosovo's Linchpin: Overcoming Division in Mitrovica (31 May 2000), a review of the stand-off between Kosovo Serbs and Albanians in this northern Kosovo city and an analysis of the tensions between them; and

  • What Happened to the KLA? (3 March 2000), an assessment of the role being played in post-war Kosovo by the leaders and members of the Kosovo Liberation Army - formally dismantled last September, but still exercising pervasive influence.
