The European Union Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX) is the largest civilian mission ever launched under the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP). The central aim of the mission is to assist and support the Kosovo authorities in the rule of law area, specifically in the police, judiciary and customs areas. The EULEX mission is conceived as a joint effort with local authorities, in line with the local ownership principle. The mission forms part of a broader effort undertaken by the EU to promote peace and stability in the Western Balkans and to support the Kosovo authorities as they undertake necessary reforms, in line with their and the regions overall European perspective. On 14 June 2016, the Council extended the mandate of the EULEX in Kosovo until 14 June 2018. This stockshot contains extracts from the EULEX Kosovo mission activities
