Abstract

Kosovo's declaration of independence on 28th February 2008 has had a profound and polarising impact on international relations. Whild over a thrid of the world's countries have recognised Kosovo, others have been concerned that it sets a precedent for secessionist minorities. Indeed, Kosovo appears to have been used as a precedent in the Russia-Georgia conflict over South Ossetia. The book brings together contributions from leading academics on the legal aspects of Kosovo and, in particular, the Internatioanl Court of Justice's Advisory Opinion of 2010. The result is an extensive examination from a variety of experts on Kosovo and its impact on international law.
