Kosovo fieldwork: standards, status and independence

Kosova/Kosovo fieldwork notes extracts

At 3.20am on the 14th of July 2005, I considered:
Should or could I split my fieldwork between Kosovo and Cyprus or elsewhere? Should or could I go on a field trip to Cyprus, Ilisu, et al in or for March 2006?

After all, as one senior UN official observes, 'the violence is increasing... Attacks are going to increase... There are going to be more bombings... March [2006] is going to be anarchy - much worse than last March [2004]'.
There will not be standards before status; there will not be standards without independence.
