Kosovo’s independence and Serbia: a fragile equilibrium

At the end of 2022, tensions between Kosovo and Serbia started sparking up again, as the Serbian president, Aleksander Vucic, deployed troops on the border with Kosovo, claiming they were prepared to fight. 

The announcement was met by the prompt response of the Serbians living in Kosovo, as road blockades were set up in Mitrovica, a Serbian majority city in the Northern part of the country.

Kosovo is located in a mountainous zone in the South of Serbia, and it is considered to be the cradle of the Serbian culture and civilization. However, out of 1.8 million people living in the country, only 6% of the population is Serb, with the majority of the population being Albanians but including also minorities of Bosnian, Turk and Roma ethnicity. For a long time, its history was intertwined with the one of Serbia. For instance, it was part of the Yugoslavian union, which under general Tito’s leadership was able to unite all ethnicities for the sake of “brotherhood and unity”.
