[ From the Media ]

The renowned think-tank ESI (European Stability Initiative) now seems to have discovered cultural heritage as a new field of research. Together with a recently formed local NGO they are now preparing a case study of Pristina, where the situation, according to their findings, is "worrying. A pattern of neglect and destruction of cultural heritage, that began with communism in the 1940s and continued under Milosevic, remains in place. The public institutions charged with protecting cultural monuments are weak. The applicable law has not been enforced at all since 1999. Most international advice has been ignored." The fairly interesting project report "Future of Pristina" is accessible here.
