Abstract

This article is the third in a series of three articles which discuss the emerging doctrine of "earned sovereignty." The first article provided a detailed definition of earned sovereignty, and its sub-components, and explained the historical and political basis for the doctrine. The second article set forth the legal basis for the doctrine. This article explores the competition between self-determination and sovereignty in the conflict between Kosovo and Serbia, and tracks the efforts of the international community to rely on the doctrine of earned sovereignty to resolve the conflict.

Keywords: Kosovo, earned sovereignty, Serbia, sovereignty
