Summary/Abstract: This paper presents an independent analysis of the current state of the Civil Protection (CP) units in the four municipalities which consti¬tute North Kosovo, and suggests possible solutions for their future. This project has been developed jointly by two think tanks: the Belgrade Centre for Security Policy and the Kosovar Centre for Security Studies in Prishtinë/Prishtina.1 Civil Protection units in North Kosovo operate outside Kosovo’s legal framework, despite the fact that the Brussels Agreement implicitly envisages the dissolu¬tion of all parallel Serbian security structures existing in Kosovo. While the Serbian com¬munity in North Kosovo sees CP as a civilian structure with the sole purpose of providing assistance to civilians in emergency situa¬tions, the Kosovo government, as well as the international institutions which operate in Kosovo, perceive CP as an illegal paramilitary structure that must be dissolved.
