On December 9, 2008, the EU Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo (EULEX) formally began operations. EULEX, a civilian mission under the European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP), replaced the UN Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK). EULEX's purpose was to assist and support Kosovar authorities in the areas of police, judiciary and customs, and to help resolve ongoing conflicts between ethnic Albanians and Serbs and stabilize local government following Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence.
