Foreign researchers paid att ention to privatization in Kosovo. Roland has distinguished fi ve most important obstacles related to the process of privatization in Kosovo (Roland, 2000, pp.236-239): political environment, fl ow of shareholders, obstacles of market structure, bureaucracy and obstacles in the system of information. Another study Privatization-the Lessons of Experience (Kikeri & Nellis &, Shirley, 2005, 9), talks about two factors that have impact to performance and success, economic productivity and welfare of consumers. In Kosovo there are identifi ed 590 SOE’s (Working Report,2009, Kosovo Privatization Agency). According to the Report of RIINVEST Institute (2008), from the total number of SOE’s identifi ed for privatization, only 30% of them have been operating aft er the war in Kosovo. Privatization process in Kosovo is proved to be the biggest challenge within South East Europe because of numerous reasons, that may be classifi ed as follows (Dervishi, 2012,63). – long delays in relation to defi nition of political status of Kosovo – insecurity and hesitations from UNMIK-United Nations Mission in Kosovo1 – involvement of too many interested parties in this process – the disputes of properties that were caused as a consequence of misusing Kosovo property and assets that were transformed to Serbs, during the time of violent measures of Serbia in Kosovo in 90’s. – lack of cadastral books because, serbs upon their withdrawal from Kosovo have taken the cadastral documents that makes problems for the historic report of properties as it is diffi cult to fi nd out the transformation of immovable properties (Dervishi, 2012,143). – obstacles to Kosovo authorities to have access to the northern part of Kosovo where local serbs don’t allow to administer SOEs, neither to return to their houses Albanian population who used to live in Mitrovica, Leposavic, Zubin Potok and Çabra.
