Protection of minority identities and territory. From the autonomy claims to secession: the case of Kosovo

Abstract. The break-up of Yugoslavia and the fall of the socialist regime in the Western Balkans have resulted in the launch of a complicated process of democratization whose development was influenced by external and internal factors. The new Constitution of Kosovo, adopted after independence, is largely inspired by the documents approved during the UNMIK mission and provides extensive guarantees for minority communities and their members. The protection of minority groups is confirmed by the rich legislation.

Razpad Jugoslavije in propad socialističnega režima na zahodnem Balkanu sta sprožila zapleten proces demokratizacije, na razvoj katerega so vplivali tako zunanji kot notranji dejavniki. Nova kosovska ustava, sprejeta po razglasitvi neodvisnosti, se zgleduje po listinah, ki so bile odobrene med misijo UNMIK ter manjšinskim skupnostim in njihovim članom zagotavlja številne pravice. Varstvo manjšin je potrjeno z bogato zakonodajno prakso, pa vendar ti predpisi ne dosegajo vselej polnega učinka.
