Review of the work of the Kosovar Court System and the international efforts to maintain peace and security
The UNMIK and Kosovar Court System: Facts, cases and materials (2012)
In June 1999, following a 78 day-long NATO campaign, the United Nations was tasked to govern Kosovo through its Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK), with an unprecedented sweeping mandate to provide Kosovo with a "transitional administration while establishing and overseeing the development of provisional democratic self-governing institutions to ensure conditions for a peaceful and normal life for all inhabitants in Kosovo."
The UNMIK Department of Justice (DOJ) has made great strides in the area of prosecuting serious crime, including cases of corruption, terrorism, war crimes. The DOJ has also continued the transition of responsibilities to local institutions, the Ministry of Justice and the Kosovo Judicial Council, and established the Kosovo Special Prosecutors Office to enable local prosecutors to take on more serious cases in the future, including corruption, organised crime and crimes against public office.
The local courts are responsible for the administration of justice in Kosovo in accordance with the applicable law. The work of these Courts and the International efforts to maintain peace and security through Justice in Kosovo are the main subjects of this work.
