Gender, ethnicity and migration?: Explaining aspirations to join the EU in post-independence Kosovo
MetadataShow full item record
We explore the attitudes towards joining the EU in post-independence Kosovo, focussing particularly on the potential role of gender, ethnicity and migration. The study is based on a survey of 1367 respondents carried out in Kosovo four months after it proclaimed independence. The ordered probit analysis reveals that women, people believing that Kosovo can work out as a multi-ethnic state and prospective migrants are more likely to support the integration of Kosovo into the European Union. The association between pro-EU sentiment and household size is of inverted U-shape with the peak occurring at seven members per household. The ethnic Serb minority is significantly less likely to support Kosovo membership in the European Union.
