  • Kosovo - Situation today
  • The Serbian province has been ruled by the United Nations since 1999. Its final status is still uncertain, which seriously hampers political development and creates social tension. Hatred between the two ethnic communities is still strong. Local institutions are virtually all controlled by Albanians and the Serbian government has no authority in the province, which is still officially part of Serbia.
