conflict itself and in the post- conflict phase. As with other sectors of Kosovan society, the judiciary enjoyed a fair amount of independence from the national government. In 1969, alterations to the Serbian constitution granted Kosovo its own Supreme Court, although Yugoslav legal codes continued to be used. On the security side, there was also a fair amount of freedom throughout the 1960s and early 1970s (Caygill, 2001; Vickers, 1994). Both of these trends were reversed with the revocation of autonomy in the late 1980s and as with other public services in Kosovo

constrained by the ideational categories they have inherited from within their own societies and through which they make sense of the world . . . the pre-existence of these ordering mechanisms does not strip the individual of autonomy; for, in recognizing and acting within these constraints, individuals are reproducing them and hence retain the possibility of changing them. (Dodge, 2010: 1271–1272) Therefore, it is important to recognise as we move through forthcoming analyses that whilst ideologically liberal foundations tend to drive actors within the DSI towards a more

In the 1930s, Seltrust, a British company, helped create modern mining around Mitrovica and in turn, during the Second World War, allied forces used batteries produced at Trepça (KTA/UNMIK, 2005). In relation to the most recent conflict over Trepça, the revocation of autonomy at the end of the 1980s and the subsequent transfer of assets to Serbian interests also involves several international actors. Assets transferred to Serbia were in turn sold to 131 4062 building a peace economy_2652

to exclude the poor.’ 11 Some theorists have gone as far as to postulate self-governing, consensual territorial communities, with fully sovereign individual members (modelled on Locke’s theory of moral autonomy, property, political authority and governance). 12 In practical terms, there is some evidence of the emergence of such ‘private’ communities, for instance in Israeli settlements, in ‘gated communities’ of white South

ethicists have been particularly aware not only of the progressive potential of care ethics, but of the very real possibilities for domination that inhere. Thus Joan Tronto has suggested, ‘There is always implicit in care the danger that those who receive care will lose their autonomy and their sense of independence’ (Tronto 1993 : 146). Because care ethicists are concerned to highlight moral (and political

system seemed to have produced not only new expectations but also new pressures for further integration. But the institutional evolution of the Community was lagging behind its (re)emerging neofunctionalist ambitions. The SEA did not represent a qualitative leap towards a ‘self-regulating pluralist society’ at the regional level, or even towards high levels of political autonomy on the part of supranational institutions. Although it needs to be pointed out that the Delors Commission did try to develop an independent strategy for managing the ‘1992 process’ and to

cultural justice. (b) Since each culture is different from its neighbours, this loss is not just a general complaint about increasing cultural homogeneity, but a particular worry about the loss of a particular culture. Finally (c) cultures are not tightly knit clusters of shared values, and hence do (despite liberal worries) allow for freedom and autonomy. These three claims can each be questioned. Questioning (a), we can say that lots
