The editors are happy to announce the online release of a new study in the Publication Series on "Resistance/Liberation Movements and Transition to Politics". This eighth issue, entitled "The KLA and the Kosovo War: From Intra-State Conflict to Independent Country", was written by Berghof's Kosovar research partner Armend Bekaj, based on extensive interviews with leading KLA founders and veterans as well as local bibliographical sources. As with the other papers in this series, it analyses the origins, development and post-war transformation of the Kosovo Liberation Army from the specific perspective of its members, who made the transition from opposing an oppressive state regime to participating in the construction of a new, more democratic system. In particular, it looks at commonalities between the KLA and other resistance/liberation movements across the globe, while also reflecting on distinct historical traits which make Kosovo's transition to statehood quite unique and arguably unprecedented.
