Summary/Abstract: Kosovo is a perfect illustration of how the concept of memory and living experiences align to create two very different visions of the same idea. Both Kosovo-Albanians and Kosovo-Serbs remember the past wrongs which each side inflicted upon the other and have used the past to mould an identity. Yet the idea of a unified Kosovar identity can only be constructed within a state (polity)-oriented identity framework.
