The Kosovo experience has been a positive one, especially form the standpoint of the protection
of the Albanian minority from the onslaught of the Serbian para-military forces.

Abeille gives us a complete picture of the situation, including a detailed description of the forces and institutions designed to restore the normality within this harassed area of Europe.
