Abstract [en]

The Kosovo conflict has for a long time been the subject of debate, research and controversy. NATO's and US's role in the conflict has been seen differently from different perspectives. Serbia opposes the US and NATO`s involvement by claiming the right to the principle of non-intervention and accusing them of occupying an independent country. The United States and NATO claim that the Belgrade regime has lost the right to rule Kosovars because of the treatment they were subjected to. The United States and NATO claim that the war was about humanitarian intervention, aimed at saving Kosovo`s people from ethnic cleansing. This case study aims to find out the main causes of military intervention and understand how two of the classical theories, Liberalism and Realism can explain NATO`s role, in particular the United States main reason for intervention. This study shows that Nato and USA interfered in the conflict for two main reasons, firstly because of humanitarian reasons and to save Kosovo`s people and secondly to prevent that the conflict would spread to other balkan countries.
