Statebuilding in Kosovo

Statebuilding in Kosovo

(p.127) 4 Statebuilding in Kosovo
The Sovereignty Paradox

Dominik Zaum (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the statebuilding efforts of the United Nations Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) that was established after the Kosovo war in 1999. It is divided into three parts. While the first part outlines the background to the intervention, analyses the scope of the international authority, and discusses the transition to local rule, the other two sections contain detailed case studies of statebuilding: the reform of the judicial system, and the privatization of socially owned enterprises, one of the most controversial reform efforts of UNMIK. The chapter not only shows the influence of norms on UNMIK's statebuilding policies, but also the problems of ‘statebuilding without statehood’: building political and administrative institutions if the future legal status of a territory remains unresolved.

Keywords:   economic reform, international administration, judicial reform, privatization, United Nations
