About Kosovo

Ethnic conflicts have led to a rewriting of the map of the country that was once known as Yugoslavia in Europe´s Balkan peninsula. Violence erupted again in the late 1990s between the Serbs and ethnic Albanians living in the Kosovo region of Serbia. In 2008, the Republic of Kosovo declared itself an independent state. While it has received partial international recognition, the secession of Kosovo is not recognized by Serbia, which considers it a United Nations-governed entity located within Serbian sovereign territory.

In ancient times, the Roman Empire´s province of Dardania was located in the region. Then in the 15th century the area was conquered by the Muslim Ottoman Empire which controlled the area for the next five centuries. After the First Balkan War (1912-1913), Kosovo was incorporated into the Kingdom of Serbia. The constitution of Yugoslavia, created after World War II, recognized the autonomous province of Kosovo and Metohija within the Yugoslav republic of Serbia.

Kosovars are primarily Muslim and resentment runs deep for their Serbian occupiers, who espouse Christianity. Of a population of two million people, 88% are ethnic Albanians, while some 7% are Serbian. The dominant religions are Muslim (80%), Christian (10%), and other (10%). Among Christians, Protestants make up 0.3%.
