Learning from Kosovo

August 1999

We are delighted to have our colleague Dr Matthew Gibney as Guest Editor for this issue with its focus on Kosovo. In his introduction ‘Learning from Kosovo’, on page 4, Matthew Gibney discusses the relevance of an issue on Kosovo and introduces the articles that follow. We received so much material on Kosovo that the feature section is longer than usual; in the rest of the issue, you will find  our usual regular features plus one general article – on East Timor – and an extract from a report on sexual and gender-based violence in Tanzania.
