Information Session: First Agreement Between Serbia and Kosovo of Principles Governing Normalization of Relations

April 24, 2013 // 10:00am11:30am

On 19 April 2013, in Brussels, under the auspices of the European Union and EU foreign policy chief Baroness Catherine Ashton, the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo signed “The First Agreement of Principles governing Normalization of Relations.” While there is opposition in both Serbia and Kosovo to the Agreement, it has since been approved by both the parliaments in Belgrade and Prishtina.

This information session explores the background to the Agreement and its political implications. The briefing focuses on key elements of the Agreement by asking questions regarding aims and aspirations of the main stakeholders (Serbia/Kosovo/EU). What are the potential stumbling blocks to implementation? What are the wider implications for the region?
