Lost in Transition: Canada and the Search for a 3-D Solution in Kosovo

Research Report by Julian Wright

Julian Wright studies the current situation in Kosovo (i.e., 2005), with a particular eye towards its compatibility with Canada’s new 3D approach to development in general, “which seeks to integrate defence, development and diplomacy efforts.” Wright shows that the population of Kosovo has become restless, despite improvements in living conditions. He suggests this development can be linked to a stalemate in the political situation, given the inability of the country’s two regions (Serbia and Kosovo) to reach an agreement on Kosovo’s secession. In Wright’s view, the way forward for Kosovo requires the continued implementation of a plan which would include all aspects of Canada’s 3D approach in order to fill Kosovo’s power vacuum, deal with its neighbours (notably Serbia), and improve the economic and security situations.
