In this thesis I have examined the work of the United Nations Interim Administrative Mission in Kosova by assessing the quality of democracy created under such an administration.

In this thesis I have examined the work of the United Nations Interim Administrative Mission in Kosova by assessing the quality of democracy created under such an administration. The main goal has been to find the democratic consequences arising from UNMIKs work. The main question posed in this thesis is therefore directed towards answering if this mission has been a success or failure. In order to do this the thesis also looks into the initial obstacles that UNMIK was faced with when establishing its seven year long administration. This thesis seeks to answer the posed questions by a qualitative case study on Kosova.

My conclusion is that there has been significant success considering the obstacles that UNMIK was posed with in Kosova but also that the status quo can no longer be justified and that it has had a negative effect on the assessed dimensions. If Kosova is to enhance the quality of democracy my conclusion is that the political status of Kosova must be addressed and that it must be a solution that respects the will of the population. (Less)
