Cutting or Tightening the Gordian Knot?
The Future of Kosovo and the Peace Process in the Western Balkans After the Decision on Independence
This book assesses the consequences and repercussions of Kosovo's declaration of independence, featuring contributions from the 16th Workshop of the Partnership for Peace (PfP) Consortium Study Group on Regional Stability in Southeast Europe, held in Austria in May 2008. Issues discussed relate to the stability of Kosovo and the western Balkans as a whole as well as relations between Kosovo's neighbors such as Serbia and Macedonia. The book also covers whether Kosovo's secession could set a precedent for the region, US, EU and Russian involvement and the necessity of confidence building measures for progress to be achieved.
