Foreign Fighters and Kosovo’s DiasporaThe case of Germany

The conflicts in Syria and Iraq and the rise of the Islamic State (IS) have attracted thousands of foreign fighters from European countries to join the conflict in the Middle East. A large number of foreign fighters are second and third-generation migrants from the Middle East, North Africa and the Western Balkans. This paper aims to provide some groundwork for research on the radicalisation of immigrants, by investigating why some Kosovar immigrants in Germany have joined violent extremism organisations like IS and Hayat Tahrir al Sham. In particular, the paper identifies some of the consequences of shifting social dynamics and identity formation as the ties between the diaspora community and the country of origin change over time. The paper concludes with a few policy recommendations both to German and Kosovar political authorities on increasing the resilience of Kosovar diaspora living in Germany against radicalisation and violent extremism.

Critical substantive issues at the nexus of peacemaking and constitution-building

Mediation and constitutional processes are tasked with transforming the root causes of protracted societal conflicts, as well as redressing abuses of power and human suffering caused by conflict. This paper examines the most critical substantive or thematic issues which lie at the heart of both peacemaking and constitution-building endeavours: inclusive political governance; territory and power; security sector reform and governance; and transitional justice. The report then concludes by proposing a number of approaches and strategies to address some of these challenges, based on lessons learnt from past experiences and expert interviews.
