Kosovo: An Example for Self-Governance?
A special two day meeting, "Kosovo: An Example for Self-Governance?" was held April 1-2, 1998 at Princeton University. The conference discussed the case of Kosovo as an example for self-governance. Conceptually several degrees of self-governance could be possible: complete independence and classical sovereignty, or maximum autonomy within the existing international boundaries but with great rights, and obligations, for Kosovo. This would also entail becoming a Republic within the remaining Yugoslav federation. The meeting brought together experts from Kosovo, Serbia, and European representatives of the UN, as well as some twenty graduate students specializing in problems related to self-determination.
