Brussels is considering restructuring EULEX mission

The European Union is considering “re-formatting” of EULEX ahead of a decision on a new budget for the rule-of-lawmission.

Cuts in staffing numbers and a hand-over of responsibilities to Kosovo authorities are among the options on the table as the EU’s top foreign diplomat, Catherine Ashton, reviews EULEX’s remit.

A strategic review is under way into the structure and priorities of EULEX, which will involve input from many stakeholders, including EULEX and the Government of Kosovo.

Recommendations arising from this review must then be approved by EU member states.
