This study focuses on the politics and society of Kosovo from the 12th century until the recent past. It interprets the history of Kosovo in South-Eastern Europe and analyzes the roots of the 20th century conflict. Furthermore, the thesis describes how the Kosovo issues influenced neighboring countries and the implications for European security. Finally, the thesis reflects on the possible future of Kosovo. Two major conflicts that developed in the Balkan area (Bosnia/Kosovo, 1992-1999) raised the question about the stability of the zone. The thesis describes the security risks and challenges to the Balkan area and the prospects for solving these problems.
