L'avenir des protectorats internationaux sur les Balkans : Présentation du Rapport de suivi de la Commission internationale indépendante sur le Kosovo

Abstract : [The future of international protectorates in the Balkans. Independent International Commission on Kosovo] Why conditional independence? The follow-up of the Kosovo report The Independent International Commission on Kosovo, created in 1999 by the Swedish government and co-presided by Richard Goldstone and Carl Tham, came to the conclusion in its October 2000 report that the NATO intervention was legitimate, although illegal, and that the aim of establishing an international protectorate that was a consequence of it should be the "conditional independence" of Kosovo. One year later, in Fall 2001, it considers that the situation has evolved in a way that confirms the wisdom of its analyses. The fall of Milosevic and the decline of violent nationalistic movements obvious in the recent elections in various parts of ex-Yugoslavia, far from justifying passivity from the international community, obliges it to seize the opportunity to discuss the final status of Kosovo in the best possible conditions. This independence should be conditional, with shared sovereignty. Indeed, all national sovereignties in the 21st century are shared in some way.
