Abstract this article evaluates the planning process and initial implementation of the rule of law mission of the european union in kosovo (eulex). It shows that the original intention was to have a smaller presence than the predecessor united nations mission in kosovo (unmik). Yet as a result of a lack of settlement on the international status of kosovo, the european union ended up with a robust mandate and it was unable to make a fresh start in order to distinguish itself from the united nations. Eulex has, nonetheless, successfully established itself, but it remains too early for a final judgment.
