War Concept of Kosovo Albanians and Democratic Option of Belgrade


The concept for solving the Kosovo issue that prevails among Kosmet Albanians follows the "Drenica model". It rests on the accomplished act policyThe desired state of affairs is established through violenceexpulsion, destruction, seizurefollowed by appeals to "reality" and demands from the international community to take the "actual situation" as the starting point. Counterposed is the "Belgrade model", developed by the Serbian side, especially after October 5. It is based on the idea of genuine coexistence and sustainable development, and does not cover up for an attempt to divide the Province. On the contrary, the "Belgrade model" affirms the highest democratic standards and serves the interests of both the Albanian ethnic community in Kosovo and the Serbian state, as well as those of the International community.

Key words: conflict resolution, ethnic conflicts, Kosovo, democracy, Serbia.



Mario Brudar


Kosovo and Metohija between Aspirations, Realities and Wishes


What the Kosmet Albanians wish is an independent Kosovo now, without any divisions or cantonization. What Serbia wishes is to restore its sovereignty in Kosovo, or to postpone its independence as long as possible and meanwhile work out the cantonization of the Province. A compromise may be found in independence with cantonization. But a good compromise is apparently of no interest to anyone at all, including even the international community.

Key words: conflict resolution, ethnic conflicts, Kosovo, Serbia.



Aleksandar Mitić


The Pressure against Compromise


In an open and argumented debate, the Serbian plan for a maximum autonomy of Kosovo and Metohiaa constructive, fair and compromising proposalwould largely overshadow the Kosovo Albanian demand for a maximalist, one-sided and illegal solutionan independence of Kosovo. Nevertheless, at the outset of the talks, bias, double-standards and international pressure are being mostly applied against Belgrade.



Zoran Stokić


Can Serbia Win the US Support for Its Plan for Kosovo?


The decisive vote on the future of Kosovo is that of the U.S.A. Serbia will have to use the Kosovo status negotiations to impose itself on the U.S.A. as a reliable and long-term ally. Combating terrorism and the stability of the region are essentially the shared interest of Serbia and the U.S.A. Both elements are present precisely in the Kosovo case. Linking the solution to this issue with the problem of Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro could yield substantial diplomatic gains. Namely, the US administration has to be repeatedly explained that the scenario involving an independent Kosovo, unitary Bosnia and Herzegovina and Milo Mila Đukanovićs Montenegro is a burning fuse in the foundations of the Balkan peace, instable as it is. No EU integration processes could pacify these new or still smoldering hotbeds of conflicts. A properly understood US interest is to stabilize and integrate this area. In this respect, firm partnership between Serbia and the U.S.A. in finding actual compromise solutions for Kosovo and other issues, may be decisive for peace in the entire region.

Key words: conflict resolution, ethnic conflicts, Kosovo, the U.S.A., Serbia.



Nenad Kecmanović


A Jubilee Revised


Wars on the territories of the former Yugoslavia brought about population migrations and establishment of new territorial-ethnic borders within the former republics and provinces. The most reasonable solution would be to accept these new borders. Mixed nations could live in peace with each other for centuries under the authoritarian rule of emperors and kings. But when freedom came, they opted to live with those they found the closest in terms of their nation, language and religion. Yugoslavia, too, was sustainable under the monarchic and communist authoritarianism. It disintegrated with the advent of democracy. Bosnia and Herzegovina is today sustainable only under the dictatorship of the High Representative. But, once the Bosnian nations are really left to themselves, it is hard to imagine that their future will be any different that that of Austria-Hungary or Yugoslavia.

Key words: conflict resolution, ethnic conflicts, Bosnia and Herzegovina, democracy.
