This article examines the issue of the partial transfer of Kosovo’s sovereignty to international organisations, addressing the issue’s constitutional considerations in respect of the Kosovo Constitution. We also consider here the issue of Kosovo’s territorial integrity throughout the period of international administration from the UN until the declaration of independence and presently. What are the current possibilities that such a future transfer of state sovereignty might take place? And will constitutional changes and amendments take place to enable the partial transfer of Kosovo’s sovereignty to the EU after the European integration process begins? Finally, we review practice in some countries that have gone through the European integration process, considering how they have adapted their constitutions regarding the process of the partial transfer of sovereignty to the EU. The article concludes that Kosovo has been set up as a state to be engaged in Euro-Atlantic integration processes and that, consequently, there are few constitutional barriers to the concessions of sovereignty required to allow it to play its part in such processes.
