From Kanun to Capacity Building: “The Internationals”, Civil Society Development and Security in the Balkans.

Sampson, Steven LU (2003) In International Intervention in the Balkans since 1995 p.136-157
Abstract
This paper provides an anthropological definition of "security" to discuss the nature of international intervention in the Balkans. Using examples from the author's development work in Albania, it describes how the international project implementation carried on by development NGOs interacts with local customary laws such as the Albanian 'kanun'. Projectization has created new project elites, but the fundamental problems of security and uncertainty will not be solved by creating new Western style NGOs.
