Dissolution of Yugoslavia and the Case of Kosova: Political and Legal Aspects
Enver Hasani

This study analyzes the issue of self-determination, territorial integrity and international stability, within the Yugoslav context. However, it is not confined to the Yugoslav case of self-determination alone. The study stretches over other several cases of self-determination and analyzes the historical background of the phenomenon itself. The argument of this dissertation in terms of the history of self-determination is that the phenomenon has gradually crystallized over the last two centuries. In addition, self-determination is viewed in connection with two other issues: territorial integrity and international stability. In fact, these two segments have been and remain intrinsic to every discussion of self- determination. The historical part of the problem also is comprised of scholarly work and the judicial practice that has lead to the final formulation of self-determination as it stands at the present.
