Kosovo is known as the country of “young Europeans.” Its citizens are well-educated, multilingual, dynamic and have an abundance of entrepreneurial spirit. Kosovo’s history is both a fascinating and tragic mix of conflict, occupation and emergence as a new country in the complicated political landscape of southeastern Europe. For over a decade it has been the focus of international organizations as it emerges as a member of the community of nations and aspires to EU membership.
