Ylber Aliu, Nagip Skenderi


One of the main problems of Kosovo today is facing wth the phenomenon of extremism and violent religious radicalism. The main purpose of this paper is to analyse the phenomenon of radicalization and violent religious extremism in Kosovo and confronting of the state and our society with this phenomenon. Paper records were collected from various sources, such as reports, publications, and analysis of state institutions, civil society, and religious organizations. Conclusion of the paper is that, facing of Kosovo with extremism and violent religious radicalization that leads to terrorism, viewed from the perspective of short-term is a success story because the number of kosovars who came to join terrorist organizations in Syria, after the adoption of law and strategy, is zero; however, there is no room for enthusiasm because, Kosovo remains a hotbed of individuals and groups with extremist and radical orientation.
