Kosovos State-building: Exceptional Case in International Political Practices

Enis H Rexhepi

Abstract


This paper has an academic importance as could explain modern concepts of state
birth and state-building in 21st century. Kosovos statehood, and state building process
is unique in comparison with other countries cases; Kosovos statehood derives from
a history of struggle for freedom, war as a result, and international intervention
(NATO, UN) for first time in history. This research will crystallize special relations
between Kosovo and international supervisory mechanisms introduced for short
period after its independence (ISG, ICO), these institutions derived from Ahtisaari
Plan which is a part of the Kosovo Constitution.
Paper will try to explain what happened after the independence of Kosovo, what
kind of state it became, and what is the role of international community in state
building process.
Keywords: Unique State building, Coordinated Independence.
