This dissertation discusses the legal status of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the
International Sale of Goods (“CISG”) in the Republic of Kosovo (“Kosovo”). It provides
information on the application of the CISG in Kosovo from 1989, when Kosovo was still part of
Yugoslavia, to date. Uncertainties characterizing the application of this international treaty in
Kosovo are both substantial and unique. The resulting circumstances and challenges are
reviewed in this dissertation, providing information regarding the current status of the CISG in
Kosovo (Section 2), its use both as domestic law (Sections 1.2.2, 1.2.3, 2.2 and 2.3) and as an
international treaty (Sections 1.2.1 and 2.1), the efforts to make the Convention applicable
through the principle of succession of treaties (Sections 2.1.1, 2.1.2 and 2.1.3), and the
alternative methods of application that have been adopted through Kosovo’s domestic law
(Sections 2.2 and 2.3).
