CIVIC AND UNCIVIC VALUES IN KOSOVO
History, politics, and value transformation

This volume is based on the conviction that the key to the establishment of stable liberal democracy anywhere in the world - in this case, in Kosovo - lies in the completion of three interrelated tasks: The creation of effective political institutions based on the principle of the separation of powers (including the independence of the judiciary), the implementation of the rule of law, and the promotion of civic values, including tolerance of ethnic, religious and sexual minorities, trust, and respect for the harm principle. In Kosovo, there are problems across all three measures, including judicial independence, the rule of law, and especially, civic values. Research shows that the citizens of Kosovo rank extremely low on trust of other citizens, engagement in social organizations, and tolerance of gays, lesbians, and atheists, but high on trust in the political institutions of their country along with a great deal of pride in their newly independent state.
