Substantial Change on the Horizon? A Monitoring Report on the EU’s New Bosnia and Herzegovina Initiative

pdf

The implementation process of the reform agenda has shown that the leading international actors in BiH are well able to push the country towards a sustainable reform course. This has primarily demonstrated the application of strict conditionality by the IMF. The fact that the EU initiative has so far produced only limited results was not due to the fact that a policy of conditionality in BiH does not work or can function, as many EU officials regularly claim, but because of the lack of political will of the EU, conditionality and consistency strictly apply.

Perspectives - Die 'Internationale Gemeinschaft' und die Limits der externen Interventionen

pdf

Wenn der Staat tiefgreifende politische, wirtschaftliche und ideologische Veränderungen vornimmt, kann seine Abhängigkeit von einer internationalen Umgebung wachsen. Genau das ist vor 25 Jahren in fast allen post-kommunistischen Staaten geschehen. Die Notwendigkeit für internationale Modelle in Systemen, die einen politischen Pluralismus und Demokratie als Staatsform eingeführt haben und sich nach Außen hin öffnen, öffnen auch Einflüssen von Außen das Tor.

Die Artikel in dieser Ausgabe erzählen verschiedene Geschichten über die Herausforderungen der internationalen Interventionen in  Albanien, Bosnien und Herzegowina, Kroatien, Mazedonien und Serbien.

Perspectives - Bottom-up approaches from the Balkans to the EU

pdf

Approaches to understanding the meaning of accession to the European Union vary significantly among the post-Yugoslav
countries, depending on the size and complexity of problems these countries encounter in their prolonged transition to
democracy, free market economy, and rule of law. While one of them – Slovenia – was at least partially prepared to take advantage
of a broader market, freedom of trade and movement, and the available forms of support for economic development, for some
others the process of accession to the EU, indeed the conditionality, which was part and parcel thereof, has been an important
driving force for changes in their legal and institutional systems. Furthermore, there are countries like Bosnia and Herzegovina
and Macedonia, for which the relationship with the EU goes beyond legal adjustments and upgrading the institutional capacity,
reaching all the way to the very constitution of the polity.

Perspectives

pdf

Perspectives Southeastern Europe is about young adults in the Balkans. It is about young people with a specific kind of transition to adulthood. The comparative analysis of some Eastern and Western European countries shows that the age-status transition was strongly standardized under communist modernization, and that the main events of transition to adulthood took place in more predictable ways compared to Western Europe.
