Kosovo: Rethinking EU Policy / ISN

A rift is growing between the European Union and Kosova.
In the meantime, economic development, or a lack thereof, appears to be playing second fiddle to basic law and order, and the risk of economic and social collapse are very real. (For all intents and purposes, Kosovo depends on imports, diaspora remittances and the expenditures of international personnel to stay afloat.)

  1. Kosovo is like the anti-Hong Kong.

    You have probably heard of the whole "charter cities" idea. Basically they say, "Hong Kong is rich, Singapore is rich, this is because they are gateway cities. Let's put a gateway city in each poor country (e.g. Haiti, Cuba, etc.).

    Kosovo is the mirror-image of that kind of gateway!
