A new report from Columbia University’s David L. Phillips criticizes the EU-mediated dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, and recommends a more robust and collaborative role for the EU and United States.

Implementation Review of the Kosovo-Serbia Dialogue proposes a new format for international mediation. It suggests a deadline of 18 months to conclude negotiations. An EU Monitoring Mission would report on progress. If either party obstructs, the EU would suspend its mediation and freeze EU funds. Serbia’s negotiations to become a member of the EU would be calibrated to progress in the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue. “No progress, no chapters” is the guiding principle.
