Evaluating Kosovo’s Foreign Policy Within the Framework of Neoclassical Realism and Small State Approach

Göktürk TÜYSÜZOĞLU

Abstract

Kosovo, the last chain added to the process of the disintegration of Yugoslavia, has been a country engaged in debates regarding its political status since the declaration of independence. Kosovo has added the characteristics of being a small state in terms of national capacity and power as well as the perception of these elements. Kosovo, which acts as a small state in terms of its foreign policy, has integrated into the regional strategies of the US and the EU. There are also points where the Kosovar politicians differ from each other, in terms of strategic culture and general foreign policy pattern. In order to examine the reflections of this differentiation, it may be a correct approach to use the conceptual framework of neoclassical realism. Thus, how ideological positioning, perceptions and interests are reflected in Kosovo’s foreign policy can be evaluated.
