Lessons from Kosovo
Mary Kaldor

Introduction For Kosovo, the impact of Slobodan Milosevic's accession to power in 1989 was devastating, and only served to fuel tensions already rising within the country. The Kosovo Commission, an initiative of the Prime Minister of Sweden, Goumlran Persson, was set up to look objectively at the crisis in Kosovo, away from the influence of the various agendas of international organisations. Mary Kaldor, professor of global governance at the London School of Economics and Political Science, was one of the members of the Commission, and looks at the lessons to be learned from Kosovo.
