This paper provides a discussion of the role of school leaders in establishing democratic principles in a post‐conflict society. Drawn primarily from the author's experiences in Kosovo, the paper briefly introduces the historical and contemporary socio‐political context of the region, and then examines the role of school administrators in a post‐war society. The paper concludes with some recommendations intended to assist both the designers and recipients of educational leadership professional development programs in post‐conflict societies.
