This paper has its main focus on the Bujan Conference, held from December 31st, 1943 to January 2nd, 1944 in the highlands of Gjakova and considered often as the Second League of Prizren. The Bujan Conference is regarded as one of the most prominent and significant events in the history of the Albanian nation as it marks promises for the right of self-determination and even secession for Kosovo. At the time, it was considered a document of great significance for the Kosovo’s Albanian population but it was thereafter ignored and disregarded. The paper discusses the demand of Kosovo’s Albanians for secession of Kosovo and Dukagjin Plateau from Yugoslavia and their unification with Albania. Straightforward after the Bujan Conference, Yugoslavians ignored the Kosovo’s Albanians right to self-determination and managed in a short period to turn the self-determination for Kosovo’s unification with Albania into the re-annexation of Kosovo and the remaining of Kosovo under the Yugoslavia.
