Evangelos Kofos and Theodore Couloumbis argue in favour of a plan to protect the Serbian Orthodox Monastic Community’s heritage in Kosovo. The non paper “Establishing a Serbian Orthodox Monastic Community (SOMC) in Kosovo”, as an integral part of a comprehensive “future status’ settlement” is the result of careful discussion and evaluation at ELIAMEP involving an invited panel of experts. The discussion was based on Evangelos Kofos’ paper presented at the Workshop “Kosovo: Seeking a Sustainable Status” held in Thessaloniki, on 5-6 March 2005 with the support, among others, of the German Marshall Fund of the United States.
