The international policy community’s recent efforts to resolve Kosovo’s status have
focused almost exclusively on the province’s independence from Serbia. But
independence for Kosovo will not serve as a panacea. Rather, it would likely
endanger the province’s Serbs and destabilize the region through emulation and
spillover effects. In its drive for independence, the international community has
ignored innovative governance options for divided states. Policy discussions have
focused on governance along a territorial, rather than a functional principle – but
minorities will always be at some disadvantage in territorial units. For this reason,
non-territorial autonomy and functional control structures have been successfully
applied to address problems of governance in divided states such as Belgium. A
growing theoretical literature on these structures illustrates the promise of functional,
rather than territorial, controls to incorporate minorities into governing institutions in
troubled places such as Kosovo.
