Blocking the import of goods from Serbia has made sense in the past. But without an economic vision, trade policies are determined ad hoc and Kosovo producers are left unprepared.
The international community would accept territorial swaps between Kosovo and Serbia, provided Kosovo’s role as a political pawn remains steadfast.
The proposal to ‘correct borders’ is a smoke screen. Such a scenario won’t play well for President Thaci or President Vucic - they’d both lose the power they have over Kosovo.
The Presevo valley and north Kosovo are not monoethnic spaces. Eventual territorial swaps would lead to an inevitable dislocation of populations.
Northern Kosovo is awash with conspiracy theories and scenarios of ending up in a new war. But who benefits from all this fear-mongering?
