The conflict in Kosovo in 1999 has been described as being as significant for international affairs as the pulling down of the Berlin Wall. This importance derives from the centrality of human rights in the build-up, conduct and aftermath of the war. This volume is an attempt to explore the tragedy from the perspective of human rights in all their dimensions. An international group of specialists debate key human issues: the experiences from Bosnia; the contentious concepts; the wrongs done to the victims; the manner of the fighting; the situation in Kosovo in 2000, and the lessons for humanitarian intervention.
