Kosovo in the context of the analysis made in this book can be seen as a unique case in international relations (sui generis), because of its passage through internal non-violent and armed resistance, secession and state-building with strong support from the international community. The post-conflict transitional process had a specific progression that was strongly informed by Kosovo’s unique history and its impact on the study of the process as a whole. Kosovo displays what happens to a ‘country’ at any point in the spectrum of transitional democracies: from dictatorship, via protectorate to an independent state. We show that Kosovo’s interests at national levels are not defined well, which creates challenges for Kosovo as a new formed state-entity. We used the case of Kosovo to show what happens to a transitional, post-conflict process when national interests are defined by subnational entities, in Kosovo’s case political parties, which creates unique problems in transitional analysis.
