Chapter Summary

The objectives of the High Commissioner's Kosovo Emergency Operation (KEO) were set forth as follows: to establish a human rights presence as close as possible to the actual developments in Kosovo; to interview refugees and seek impartial verification about alleged human rights violations; to seek to identify patterns and trends in human rights violations. The High Commissioner submitted to the Commission five reports on the situation of human rights in Kosovo, none of which, for the reasons explained in the chapter, was based on a full analysis of the information collected by the KEO. The High Commissioner on several occasions, including at the daily Kosovo Emergency Task Force video-conference, declared that OHCHR would produce a comprehensive, analytical report on the findings of its operation. In order to facilitate the management of all issues related to the KEO, a Kosovo Emergency Task Force was set up in Geneva.
