heal.abstract
This dissertation was written as part of the MA in Black Sea Cultural Studies at the In-ternational Hellenic University. This master’s dissertation examines the current status of the youth civil society sector in Kosovo. It tries to have as much as possible a diachronic approach, meaning that the evolution of the youth civil society sector throughout the years after the war was taken into consideration whenever possible. The main research question, summarised in this abstract, is what the international community and the youth civil society organisations exactly understand as reconciliation, how their understanding of this term influences their programmes and, if this is the case, how the understanding of this concept has been changing over time, influencing their programmes as well. The main conclusion of this master’s dissertation is that the term reconciliation has undergone a double shift: one by the international community, and one by the locally based civil society organisations themselves. Regarding the second shift, the term still plays a very im-portant role in Kosovo’s civil society sector today, although it has become a concept with a quite negative connotation and a goal that has to be achieved rather indirectly, for example by working on youth unemployment at a first, less provocative level, and on reconciliation at a second, rather abstract and indirect level.
