THE UN SECRETARY-GENERAL?S REPORTS ON KOSOVO AND THE PROCESS OF KOSOVO?S GAINING ITS INDEPENDENCE

Abstract

Author(s): Muhammet Faruk ÇAKIR, Hüseyin EM?RO?LU

The United Nations established an interim administration in Kosovo as authorized by the Security Council Resolution 1244. The UN Secretary-General regularly informed the Council about Kosovo developments. The reports specifically included information about what had been done in order to create a substantially autonomous Kosovo as described by the Resolution 1244. They did not make any suggestions on the status of Kosovo. Nevertheless, knowing that Kosovo gained its independence it can be argued that the emphasis on autonomy, the way in which some events were narrated and the solutions offered to some problems in the reports facilitated the unilateral declaration of independence. This role was less visible in the reports written before 2005, when the US and Western Europeans favored autonomy more strongly. The repots written in 2005 and onwards, h.owever, were more influential especially in terms of preparing international public opinion for the unilateral declaration of independence.
