International Peacebuilding: a conversation with Albin Kurti, leader of Self-Determination Movement, Kosovo

Hosted by Dr Seb Bytyci, Centre for Religion, Reconciliation and Peacebuilding, University of Winchester

 

Albin Kurti joined the presidency of the Students Independent Union of the University of Prishtina (SIUUP) in August 1997, which organized peaceful, non-violent protests for the release of the university buildings and premises which were occupied by the authorities of the Serbian regime. When war began in Kosova/Kosovo, in August 1998, Kurti began working as the Secretary of the Office of the General Political Representative of the Kosova Liberation Army (KLA), Adem Demaçi.

Mr Kurti, as leader of Self-Determination movement, has won the elections in Kosovo on 6 October. Besides his views on peacebuilding since the war, we will hear from him on his government’s intentions on building positive peace and Kosovo’s interethnic relations. We will also explore Kosovo’s relations with Serbia, including the signing of a possible “final agreement” between the two countries.
