In building up Kosovo’s context of radicalisation and de-radicalisation, it is considered important to acknowledge the country’s unique situation as a fairly new state, with a recent history that has been marked with various transformative processes, including a transition from war to peace, from authoritarianism to democracy, and the ongoing process of consolidating statehood and international subjectivity. These macro-level developments are relevant in understanding radicalisation and de-radicalisation processes even at the community and individual level since forging a national identity is often tightly linked with the radicalised individuals’ struggle to find belonging, deal with the legacy of conflict, and learn how to manage high expectations in Kosovo’s newly-independent and democratized society.
