Kosovo: life after independence
Kosovo calls itself a newborn state, but critics of its independence have plenty of doubts. They point to its shattered economy and disorganised education system; to its reliance on drugs, weapons and human trafficking as short-cuts to wealth. They say its ethnic minorities have no human rights; that it isn’t recognised globally. They say the people of Kosovo can’t live side-by-side with their neighours. These, they say, are the attributes of a newborn state called Kosovo.
