This chapter investigates the EU’s rule of law mission (EULEX) in Kosovo. One of the major themes discussed within this chapter relates to the fact that the EU seems to suggest that expertise comes from outside, and that Kosovo’s agency can be accepted once it has been brought “into the European mainstream”. The prevailing understanding seems to suggest that the EU—and by extension the international community—having reached the pinnacle of democracy, rule of law, etc.—is especially well positioned to “share [the International/European standards] and shape” (this ability is seen as something that is a key characteristic of a global actor according to the EU) the Kosovo authorities.
