Families whose loved ones are still missing 21 years after the war in Kosovo continue to press Kosovo and Serbian authorities to work together to locate and identify the 1,641 people that are yet to be found.
Despite slow progress, Kosovo has taken initiative to address atrocities committed during the war. Now the country must focus its efforts on RECOM, education reform, and missing persons.
In photos: Activists and family members gather in Prishtina to urge for more efforts to uncover the fates of the more than 1,600 missing persons in Kosovo.
As we mark the Day of Missing Persons we have to ask ourselves: has the Kosovo side been determined to solve this issue for the past 18 years?
17 years after the war, Kosovo’s institutions continue to fail at addressing the issue of Kosovo’s around 1,600 missing persons, leaving loved ones with empty promises and inadequate commemoration.
