Is there a solution to the ongoing ethnic tensions in Kosovo?
Following this week’s clashes after an aggressive police raid in the predominantly Serb region of Northern Kosovo, is there a solution in sight for the long simmering ethnic tensions in Kosovo? What is the history behind the tensions in this new country, and why is Northern Kosovo still a disputed region? reuters.com/article/us-kosovo-security-idUSKCN1SY0QS Picture: 2000 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography: Fleeing Kosovo by Carol Guzy, Lucian Perkins and Michael Williamson

Kosovo’s independence is recognised internationally as the only option for peace in this region, and unless Serbia recognises Kosovo as such tensions between Serbians and Kosovo Albanians will never diminish. Kosovo has always existed in some form, despite who has been the ruling force over the region, and in this modern climate they have a right to independence as a historically distinct people group if that is what they desire, which since 2008 has been the case. Independence is probably the only way to begin repairing ethnic divides between Serbs and Albanians in the country and the first step to forging a new Kosovar national identity, anything else would lead to continued tension down ethnic lines.
