IMPLICATIONS OF A KOSOVO-SERBIA AGREEMENT FOR KOSOVO, SERBIA, AND KOSOVO SERBS
The Council for Inclusive Governance (CIG) organized a roundtable on January 29, 2019 in Pristina for political party representatives and members of civil society organizations on the implications of a potential deal between Kosovo and Serbia. Various ideas for a potential agreement between are being debated, but one that includes some form of ‘border change’ dominates the debate.
The roundtable addressed potential implications—positive and negative—an eventual agreement could have on the Serb community in Kosovo and the Serb-Albanian relations in general, the main post-agreement risks and how to manage them, and what needs to be done to make sure that the progress in the Albanian-Serb relations of the past two decades is not reversed and that the final agreement does not harm the Serb community in Kosovo.
Below is a short report from the discussion.
