Understanding the Key Players and Influence of External Actors in Kosovo

Shpat Balaj / 2 Jun 2023

This study analyses the external influence in Kosovo and how these influences manifest in the political, economic, and social realms. The report contends that the historical context in which Kosovo emerged as a state has determined how external influence is perceived in the country.

The analytical study was written as a part of PSSI's Western Balkans Project.
