Peacemaking in Kosovo is Coming to an End - for Predictable Reasons
There is a long-term background and some root causes behind the emerging peace-keeping failure in Kosovo. They do not fit the standardised image of the conflict. TFF's director who has been engaged in Kosovo since 1991 discusses some of the most important among those causes. In passing, he also points out how an allegedly "prestigious" NGO such as the International Crisis Group serves as a biased NEGO, a NEar-Governmental Organisation, and continues to offer perspectives and proposals that will make things worse in the Balkans. (Also in Danish and Swedish).
