  • This thesis will examine the efficacy of the international administration of Kosovo from 2008 to 2011. It focuses on two key issues: compliance with the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia and current efforts at liberalizing visa usage with the European Union. In order to assess both issues I use two-level game theory as a tool to investigate the organizations associated with compliance and visa liberalization. In the end I find that the structure of organizations that have the greatest effect upon the administration in Kosovo. The ICTY has a unitary structure that allows it to better exercise its wishes in Kosovo; whereas the EU is more fractured and has greater difficulty exerting itself consistently in Kosovo.
