Tensions between Serbia and Kosovo appear to be once again on the rise with the most recent outbreak of violence in Northern Kosovo on September 24th. Meanwhile there seems to be no end in sight for resolving the dispute between the two countries despite attempts to moderate the conflict by the EU and the US.

In this episode, following a brief update of the news, Adam discusses the issues of Serbia and Kosovo with Leon Hartwell, a Senior Associate at LSE IDEAS, London School of Economics, and a non-resident senior fellow at CEPA. Leon takes listeners through the challenges faced in the process and discusses why the process is unlikely able to find an outcome.

In our bonus section which is available exclusively for our Podcast Patrons, Adam and Leon discuss the role of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in the Western Balkans and Serbia’s ambiguous approach to the war.
