Bosnia and Herzegovina ahead of the elections: Hatred and warmongering instead of political vision

Analiza

Today elections are being held in Bosnia and Herzegovina: before getting out to vote, the nationalists' radical noises have brought the atmosphere to boiling point. There are threats of secession. Republika Srpska’s government desires a Greater Serbia, Croat leaders are pushing for their own entity – the wartime goals of the 90s are coming back to life. In an extremely jingoistic atmosphere, critical or alternative forces are threatened or even murdered.

Vodič kroz "de-sorošizaciju" u Makedoniji

Nedavni razvoj političke krize u Makedoniji gurnuo je zemlju ne samo bliže etničkom konfliktu, već i autoritarnom društvu. Vladajuća  VMRO-DPMNE nikada nije bila u naročito prijateljskim odnosima sa civilnim društvom, ali je održavala tek donekle hladne odnose sa donatorima, budući da su se makedonske institucije oduvijek oslanjale na njihovu finansijsku pomoć i ekspertizu. Na početku decenije, stranka bi optuživala organizacije civilnog društva i njihove predstavnike zbog navodne popustljivosti što se tiče nacionalnih pitanja i zbog pokretanja slučajeva korupcije, historijske veze sa komunistima…uglavnom služeći se istim argumentima kao i bilo koja druga nacionalistička vlada u regionu kada govori o borcima za ljudska prava.
