Description:

Naim Dedushaj’s thesis “Paradiplomatic relations between the United States and Kosova” studies the relations between the Albanian nation and America that date way back in history. The first Albanian immigrants moved to the United States in the second half of the 19th century. The major migration flows from Kosova and other parts in ex-Yugoslavia took place in the 20th century. Albanian-Americans from Kosova organized themselves actively and played a crucial role in sensitizing the American leadership about the Albanian and Kosova issue. Dedushaj argues that the activities of the Albanian-American community should not be underestimated when studying the American policies towards Kosova in the 1990s. How were the paradiplomatic relations established and maintained between the representatives of Kosova and the United States administration? What has been the role of these relations in the recent developments in Kosova? This thesis shows how the establishment of the LDK (Democratic League of Kosova) branches and their paradiplomatic activities had a crucial role in influencing both the policies of the American Congress as well as the White House and finally in the determination of the status of Kosova.

Description:

Kosovo’s path towards independence proved to be a difficult, elongated and complex process that entailed political as well as legal implications that are argued by many scholars, and analysts nowadays.

This paper gives an overview of the highly intricated negotiation process over Kosovo’s final status, encompassing a short historical analysis of the political events that finally led to the declaration of independence. The declaration of independence accelerated the international community to manage the consequences of this rather legitimate act by minimizing the disruption to the world public order but at the same time protecting the human rights.

Kosovo's statehood is supported and recognised as well as denied by different states and actors.

In this light, the paper tries to address the reaction of individual states, as well as legal complications of UNMIK’s withdrawal and EU mission deployment with a special focus on the political and legal implications.
