Comparative Analysis of the Secessions of Kosovo and South Ossetia and Their Subsequent Independence Recognition
Bolgari, Alexandr

2011, BA, Kent State University, College of Arts and Sciences / Department of Political Science.
In my thesis I undertake a comparative analysis of two recent secessions, one in the Balkans and the other in the North Caucasus. Specifically, I examine the events of the year 2008 and proclamations of independence by two regions: first by Kosovo in February and then by South Ossetia in August. The thesis also analyzes the precursors for the creation of secession movements, as well as the events of the last decade of the 20-th century. The central finding of this thesis is that the widely-claimed "sui-generis" argument is hardly applicable to Kosovo, as this region lacks uniqeness in many key aspects.
