Mask Diplomacy and Kosovo's Foreign Assistance

Combating the pandemic through delivering assistance, has become the cornerstone of diplomatic action. To this end, since the pandemic outbreak, the diplomatic activity of states and multilateral organizations has been largely focused on finding the best alternatives to secure or deliver cross-border assistance. This short document will dwell into some of these effects, more concretely on how foreign assistance has impacted international politics thus far. Apart from a general discussion, the document focuses more extensively in the case of Kosovo.

This brief policy note is part of a series of Prishtina Institute for Political Studies (PIPS) publications, with the support of Kosovo Foundation for Open Society (KFOS),which aim at deconstructing the effects of Covid-19 in Kosovo's foreign policy, also offering alternative ideas on how to overcome these obstacles. While the primary targeted audience of this series is the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Diaspora (MFAD) of the Republic of Kosovo, they will also be open to the public, with the aim of enhancing constructive public debate on Kosovo's foreign policy, with all interested stakeholders.
