  1. You might want to add Kosovo 2.0 to the list. A print publication and webzine by and for Kosovo’s youth.

    • Thanks, Duco. I will be adding to and revising this list soon, and also trying to include as many English-language sources as I can. Suggestions are always welcome. As you can see, the site has not had too many revisions or updates lately, I have just been too busy!
