Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the question of the appropriate exit strategy when dealing with post-conflict reconstruction. It evaluates the difference between initial and sustainable successes in the examined cases. Exit strategies are necessary for these reasons: a clear exit strategy at the establishment of an international administrative mission directly influences the conduct of the administration itself. Post-conflict administrations and peace-building missions indeed need to work towards the achievement of a specific goal, and the lack of a clear exit strategy therefore poses a real problem to the conduct of operations. Exit strategies need to be carefully examined and planned, as an inadequate exit strategy may have serious deleterious effects on the future of the state or territory concerned. In Kosovo, United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) was left with an uncertain final status, while nevertheless mandated to promote substantial autonomy with Serbia.

Keywords: exit strategies; international administrative mission; Kosovo; peace-building missions; Post-conflict Administration; sustainable success; UNMIK
