Chapter Summary

The Kosovo conflict was characterised by a number of features which need to be borne in mind when attempting an overall conclusion in relation to the international attempts to manage it. It arose from the context of the post-Cold War reorganisation of Europe. When considering structural impediments to the adoption of alternative ways of addressing the Kosovo conflict, it was already noted that these also had an important impact on issues of process. In particular, the absence of international institutions and mechanisms to consider internal situations in sovereign states and to address self-determination conflicts has been identified as a direct result of structural deficiencies in the international system. Throughout the Kosovo conflict, the decision-making of the European Union (EU) and the United States (US) was constrained by what appeared to be rigid structural requirements.
