Book title: Republic of Kosovo's Relations with the United States and European countries
Editor: Dr. Liridon Lika
This edited book seeks to analyze the bilateral relations of the Republic of Kosovo with the United States, and several European countries such as Albania, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Switzerland, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. In other words, each chapter will be devoted to Kosovo’s bilateral relations with a particular state which it has established diplomatic relations.
The main aim of this book is to focus on the relations that Kosovo developed with these countries during the pre-independence period (1999-2008) and post-independence period (2008-2021), including various aspects such as history, security, diplomacy, convergence of national interests, trading, economy, military, culture, education, tourism, humans or even technology.
This study is original and relevant because it aims to analyze Kosovo’s bilateral relations with each country separately. Until now, several books have been written on Kosovo, but these studies have focused mainly on state-building, the role of internal and external actors in the creation of the Kosovar state, recognition, democratization and Europeanization, but much fewer on the bilateral relations that Kosovo has built with the aforementioned states. Therefore, the study of Kosovo’s bilateral relations with these countries with which it has already established diplomatic relations, would be an added value to the academic literature. Moreover, in this book it is intended to give an important place to the perspective of scholars originating from Kosovo, but without excluding those of other countries.
The purpose of this book is to present different contributions from academics and researchers interested in Kosovo, its relations with other states and its foreign policy. This book will be of key interest to scholars, diplomats, and students focusing in the field of political science, international relations, the Western Balkans, and Kosovo’s foreign policy.
