The proclamation of independence by Kosovo was considered by many commentators and politicians to be the only way of solving the problems in the functioning of the state and of overcoming the Albania-Serbian conflict. The author, referring to the concepts of sovereignty and statehood, analyzes whether the now independent state is a sovereign and equal subject on the international arena. She also investigates the problem of territorial integrity and efficient power as the necessary conditions of state functioning. The author explains to what extent the authorities of Kosovo represent the will of the sovereign, i.e. the people who live on its territory. The analysis includes not only Albanians, but also the largest minority in Kosovo, viz. the population of Serbian nationality. In the context of Albanian-Serbian relations in Kosovo it is investigated whether the state warrants Serbs all the constitutional rights and an appropriate level of economic development, as well as how far mutual relations between the two nations have improved.
