There are two main EU bodies operating in Kosovo: EULEX, and the European Union Office in Kosovo / European Union Special Representative (EUSR) in Kosovo.
The EU Office plays the pivotal role in realising the European agenda in Kosovo with the aim to promote Kosovo's approximation to the European Union. As an integral part of the European External Action Service and the European Commission's representation in Pristina, the Office ensures that a permanent political and technical dialogue is maintained with the Brussels institutions. The EUSR offers advice and support to the Government of Kosovo in the political process; provides overall coordination for the EU presences in Kosovo; and contributes to the development and consolidation of respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms in Kosovo. The EUSR reports to the Council of the European Union, the inter-governmental body representing the 27 EU member states, through the High Representative/Vice President of the European Commission, Josep Borrell Fontelles.
