Buy Country Review

For as long as anyone can remember, the history of Kosovo has been a battlefield pitting Serbs against Albanians. Each believes different things because each has been taught different things, and as they reach further back into time it becomes easier to argue whatever they want in order to find support for their view of the present.

Meanwhile, as Kosovo approached its 2013 local elections, a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) report observed that while it was ‘encouraging’ that 16 per cent of Serbs in northern Kosovo would definitely vote in the November elections, and another 17 per cent ‘might’ vote, a whopping 44 per cent said they definitely would not vote. The same survey also noted that 48 per cent of the Serbs in the north of Kosovo apparently had no idea which parties were running in the elections, and 47 per cent did not know the names of the candidates running as mayors. The result of the poll will disappoint Kosovo-Serb officials who had called for a mass turnout in the elections, which had been described as historic because the government of Serbia had, for the first time, backed the elections, which were designed to pave the way towards the establishment in Kosovo of an association of Serbian municipalities, entrusted with broad powers of self-government. The political legitimacy of the association would obviously depend to some extent on the size of the turnout in the north, where most Kosovo Serbs were concentrated and where they formed the majority community in four municipalities.
