Summary/Abstract: This policy brief intends to examine the Integrated Border Management situation in Kosovo, looking at good practice with par¬ticular focus on the ‘one stop shop’ at a Kosovo-Albania border crossing point (Vermicë / Morinë), which by agreement between the two governments (Albania and Kosovo) operates in a unique manner. Its methodology aims to decrease queues of travellers, especially during the flux of holiday travellers to Alba¬nia and during the flux of Kosovar diaspora visits to Kosovo. This practice works on the basis of border checking on only one side of the border (usually the country receiving the individuals or goods) and also mutual ex¬change of information. In short, this practice has been very creative in aiming to more effectively avoid queues and manage borders. With this policy brief, we intend to examine these practices from a functional perspective and determine whether it is appropriate to apply similar arrangements at other borders (e.g. Kosovo-Serbia) and what practical implications would follow such an arrangement.
