This article provides an overview of major developments that marked 2016 concerning ethnic issues in Kosovo. Particular attention is given to the actions of Srpska Lista (Serb List), Kosovo’s largest Serb party, as well as to the planned Association/Community of Serb-Majority Municipalities. There is also discussion of interethnic tensions and violence and of the controversy surrounding the lead poisoning of Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian residents of UN Interim Administration in Kosovo (UNMIK) camps in Mitrovica. The article finishes with a summary of the year’s positive developments and reflections on the potential for the future. It is concluded that despite major obstacles, incremental progress is being made in interethnic relations and, particularly, in the integration of Serbs into the Kosovar state.
