Kosovo: A European State, or Not?


The United States Institute of Peace would like to remind you of an upcoming event that may be of interest to you:

Kosovo: A European State, or Not?

September 16, 2009, 9:30am-11:30am

R.S.V.P. Now

Kosovo, which declared its independence a year and a half ago, is now recognized by 62 other U.N. member states and aims eventually to join the European Union.  What progress is it making in this direction?

Will Serbia — which has asked the International Court of Justice for an advisory opinion against Kosovo independence — ever recognize Kosovo?  When might Kosovo hope to qualify for NATO and EU membership?  Will the EU, which split on recognizing Kosovo, accept it as a member?

This event will feature the following speakers:

Engjellushe Morina
Executive Director, Kosovo Initiative for Stability

Soren Jessen-Petersen
Washington representative of Independent Diplomat
Former USIP Jennings Randolph Fellowship Program guest scholar
Former U.N. special representative in Kosovo
Former Head of the U.N. Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK)

Daniel P. Serwer, Moderator
Vice President, Centers of Innovation and
Center for Post-Conflict Peace and Stability Operations
U.S. Institute of Peace
