The international Intervention in Kosova The break-up of Yugoslavia in the 1990s saw the creation of new independent states out of the republics that comprised it Even though Kosova was one of the constituent units of the Yugoslav Federation albeit not a republic the international community refused to recognize it as a sovereign country However the recognition of other former Yugoslav republics such as Slovenia Croatia and Bosnia as sovereign states by the international community did not prevent the ensuing war that claimed the lives of thousands of people on all sides All international norms and conventions were suddenly violated as if they did not exist at all The Wilsonian vision for the right to national self-determination was crumbling in a most ruthless way This was also the case in Kosova where Serbia had established an oppressive and apartheid-like rule resulting in gross human rights violation that in turn led to an international NATO-led military intervention My approach in favor of the international intervention in Kosova is very much shaped by the liberal theory in particular the liberal institutionalism It is more than clear that Serbia was not observing international human rights conventions and treaties that it had agreed to This was an open challenge to the new world order proclaimed by President Bush in the case of the international intervention against Iraq in 1991 arguing that the war was about more than a small country it was about a big idea of a new world order with peaceful settlement of disputes new world order against aggression reduced and controlled arsenals and just treatment of all peoples These values were clearly infringed in Kosova by Serbia The conflict that erupted in Kosova in 1999 between the Kosova Liberation Army the armed Albanian guerilla force and Serb and Yugoslav security forces posed a great threat to international peace and security There was also an imminent risk of a wider Balkan war
