FUTURE OF THE BELGRADE-PRISTINA DIALOGUE
On July 4, 2019 in Belgrade, Serbia, the Council for Inclusive Governance (CIG) convened a group of experts and politicians to discuss the current state of the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue. Participants came up with a number of suggestions and conclusions on the dialogue and on what should be done, including short-term confidence building measures, to resume it. The discussion reflected the participants’ skepticism about a final settlement. They also said that that the normalization process should be more focused on the normalization of societies. In the short term, the international community, the governments and the civil society should focus on measures that build confidence. Following is a brief report.
