Abstract: The main focus of this paper is on Kosovo Serb communities and process of stabilizing the relation among them and Albanian community. First part of the paper will present their location on the map, geopolitical analysis, surroundings and functionality of different enclaves together with demographic data and population, density and the statistics of villages and towns where are created conditions to sustainable return of internally displaced people. Second part will explain process of integration of Kosovo Serb minority through the Ahtisaari decentralization plan. The third part refers on parallel structures south of the Ibar that operate together with new elected Kosovo structures which will be great challenge for new locals in power to cut them off and make them participate in regular ones. Furthermore, this part will give attention to Serbian- run institutions in the north of Kosovo (also refer as ‘the North’) and dead lock of the conflict that culminated when Kosovo tried to impose the rule and officials over the custom in the north, over the borders with Serbia. The end of this analysis will be concluding points and recommendations. After more than 10 years living in isolation south Kosovo Serb can finally be responsible for their own lives, in a frame of local municipality government they are fully in charge on basic socio-economic and political field. Participating, we could say, was the easier part, now the representatives have to fulfill their promises and keep up with the latest problems that Kosovo is facing. Better cooperation, promotion of cultural and other rights without rising a question of the status and partition, creation of good, strong Serb political leadership that will intermediate not only between Kosovo Serb community and Kosovo Government, but between Serbia and Kosovo can build a sustainable Serb community in Kosovo, stabilizing the region and move forward in solving the other socio- economic problems that Kosovo is facing on, where its citizens could have better standard of living and a decent life.
