Elevated tones in Kosovo and the consolidating of diplomatic initiatives are once again leading us into seemingly very lively dialogue over this conflict that has endured for many years. But are we really asking the right questions about the possibility of peace and sparks of conflict?
Are we on the brink of another war on the borders of the European Union, or is the current sharpening of the dialogue in Kosovo and the intensifying of diplomatic pressure part of the staging that we’ve already grown accustomed to and which has yet to produce tangible peace results? Or are we really closer to a historic breakthrough this time around?
Our interlocutors for this edition of CorD’s Focus feature discuss all the theories being offered publicly regarding this being about a minor rebalancing of internal (Serbian-Kosovo) political powers, to the influence of the Russian factor. They additionally also point to other conflicts in the Western Balkans that could be an even bigger problem than Kosovo.
