Five years after the end of the conflict in Kosova, final status remains an object of discussion. The author elaborates several options that have been proposed by analysts, diplomats, and various forums. The author argues that final status must be based on the factors that influence the creation of states and on the principles behind any democratic and just solution concerning statehood: uti possidetis, the ethnic principle, and the right to self-determination.
