Exploring the potential for conflict resolution inherent in an ICJ advisory opinion in general terms, the concrete prospects for mitigation and ultimately resolution of the Serbia-Kosovo conflict were examined by focusing on four major developments since July 2010. It is argued that the advisory opinion 1) facilitated further recognition of Kosovo’s statehood and its effects; 2) expanded international engagement in Serbia and Kosovo, especially on the part of the European Union; 3) promoted shifts in domestic opinion, politics and policy in Serbia and Kosovo leading towards the normalization of relations between the two entities; and 4) enabled the growing participation of Kosovo in the society of states, mitigating the Serbia-Kosovo conflict. In turn, a sustained pragmatism has emerged among Kosovar and Serbian leaders and their European and international partners that has provided a hopefully sustainable basis upon which the concomitant gains in stability can be consolidated and enhanced.
