This article deals with the effectiveness of power-sharing arrangements and how they influence the identity building process in the particular case of Kosovo Serbs.

I argue that ordinary people’s everyday resistance to power-sharing provisions engenders a marginalization process, which contributes to the emergence of multiple Serbian identities within the Kosovo entity.
