Kosovo: The Economic Keys to Stability

Friday, November 6, 2009
10:00am - 11:30am
Room 1219 International Affairs Building

Please join the Harriman Institute for a talk by Nenad Popović, Member of Parliament, Belgrade.

This talk will address the economic aspects of Kosovo and Metohija's prospects for stability and peace by examining the economic problems that have confronted the province historically and how they are being addressed currently. Popovic will also examine UNMIK's management of Kosovo's economy and will explain how the EU mission has inherited a very difficult set of economic problems that are as important for maintaining stability as political and legal issues. He will pay special attention to issues of privatization, the potential for attracting foreign investment in Kosovo, the possibilities for Serbian-Albanian cooperation despite the ongoing dispute over status, and the current economic difficulties of Kosovo's Serb and other minorities.
