Kosovo
& Albanians of Montenegro and Macedonia

Kosova - Maqedonia - Mali i Zi


Albanian

Important albanian minorities live outside independent Albania, mainly in Kosovo (till now in Serbia, Yugoslavia; now unsettled status), Macedonia and Montenegro (Yugoslavia), and you will find those tables in this page. In another page you will learn that distinctive albanian dialects are spoken in Southern Italy (Arberesh community) and Greece (Arvanite and Cham communities). The native name of the Albanian language is Shqip, though the Italian and Greek communities use other names.
 
Check below the note about spellings.

Shqip

Gutxiengo albaniar garrantzitsuak bizi dira Albaniatik kanpo, Shqip edo albanieraz mintzatzen (nahiz eta hizkuntzari beste modu batzuez esaten zaion Italian eta Grezian, adibidez). Batez ere Kosovon (Serbia, Jugoslavia), Mazedonian eta Montenegron (Jugoslavia), eta horien berri orri honetan duzu. Beste orri batean jakingo duzu komunitate albaniar batzuen berri: hor dira hegoaldeko Italian (Arbereshtarrak) eta Grezian (Arvanitak and Cham komunitatea).

Kosovo

Kosova (Kosovo in Serbian), is part of Serbia (Yugoslavia). Capital: Prishtina (Pristina in Serbian). Pre-war population: 2.2 million ( Albanian 90%, Serbian 8%). A republic with some self-governing institutions in the former Titoist Yugoslavia, in 1989 Belgrade imposed direct Serbian rule. In 1998, the UÇK independentist movement rebelled, and war broke in 1999, with NATO intervention. At the time of update, the KFOR military (mainly NATO) forces rule in Kosovo, and situation seems favorable to majority Albanians. But KFOR seems to have no apparent plan for the future status of the region, and prospects are unclear for the minorities now marginalised (Serbs, Muslim Slavs, Roma Gypsies and Turks). Regarding placenames, international western organisations continue using only Serb names, and independentits information sources on Internet use almost exclusively Albanian names.

Kosova

Kosova (Kosovo serbo-kroazieraz) Serbiaren menpean dago, Jugoslavian. Hiriburua: Prishtina. Biztanleak gerra aurretik: 2.2 milioi (Albaniarrak %90, Serbiarrak %8). 1989 arte, Titoren Jugoslavia bizi zenean, bazegoen auto-gobernu maila bat, baina Belgradek dena ezabatu zuen. Hamar urteren buruan, 1998an, borroka armatua hasi zuen UÇK gerrilak, eta haien alde azaldu zen azkenean Mendebaldea, NATOren esku sartzearekin eta Jugoslaviaren kontrako gerrarekin (1999ko udaberria). Orain, orri hau berritzeko garaian, NATOren KFOR indarrek kontrolatzen dute Kosovo, eta egoerak Albaniarren aldekoa dirudi. Hala ere, ez dirudi NATOk edo Mendebaldeak plan argirik dutenik Kosovoko etorkizuneko estatusari begira, eta independentziarik ez dela esaten dute modu absurdo samarrean. Bestetik, bertako oraingo gutxiengo jazarrien etorkizuna ere ilun ageri da (serbiarrak, musulman eslaviarrak, Roma edo ijitoak, eta turkiarrak). Toki izenei dagokioenez, komunikabide guztiek eta Mendebalde osoko iturriek izen serbiarrak besterik ez dituzte erabiltzen, batek daki zergatik.
