Kosovo: Socio – Economic Challenges


  • Adrian Lucian Kanovici



In early 2015, a large number of citizens of Kosovo fled to EU countries, mainly to Germany. Also, other problems like the uncertain status of Northern Kosovo represent important challenges for the future of Kosovo as a sovereign state. For the EU, the political, economic and social development of Kosovo is one of the keys to maintain the stability of the Western Balkans. The objective of this article is to determine the main causes of political, social and economic issues underlying this phenomenon and to analyze its impact on the future of Kosovo. Immigration has become a topic of increasing importance in the EU, given that Europe is facing growing waves of immigrants coming from North Africa and the Middle East. So, the new wave of immigrants from Kosovo has brought more concern in European capitals.
