International Civilian Representative for Kosovo

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
Constitution and law

The International Civilian Representative for Kosovo (ICR), supported by the International Civilian Office (ICO), was the European Union Special Representative (EUSR) for Kosovo (appointed by the Council of the European Union) which was re-appointed by the International Steering Group for Kosovo as the ICR pursuant to the Ahtisaari Plan.[1] The ICR was the "final authority in Kosovo regarding interpretation" of the Plan, and could, in principle, annul decisions or laws adopted by Kosovo authorities or sanction public officials who strayed from the Plan.[2][3] The ICR reported to the International Steering Group for Kosovo (ISG).[4]

Following the publication of the draft status proposal in 2006, an International Civilian Office preparation team has been set up in Pristina. The 2008 Kosovo declaration of independence declared to accept the obligations contained in the Ahtisaari Plan, welcoming its framework. [5]

In September 2012, international supervision ended,[6] and Kosovo became responsible for its own governance.[7]
