A decade ago, the elected representatives of the people of Kosovo gathered in an extraordinary session to declare the country independent and sovereign. One of the main arguments, which was continuously repeated throughout the process of resolving Kosovo’s political status, was that the country represented a unique case in world politics. What is the story of Kosovo’s statehood, ten years after independence? Starting from this very question, D4D has compiled this report that seeks to review the statehood with the help of hindsight.
