At the Crossroads: Disaster or Normalization?

The Yugoslav Successor States in the 1990s

Valeria Heuberger, Henriette Riegler and Hermine Vidovic

The decline of economy, increasing nationalism, ethnic tensions, and finally war characterized the political development of the states on the territory of former Yugoslavia. As no other region in Europe has so many different ethnic groups and religions, it was - and is still - highly complicated to take care of the implementation of the Dayton agreement in Bosnia-Herzegovina. But besides Bosnia there are all the other states on the territory of former Yugoslavia who have to try to find their own solutions for the deep rooting problems in politics, economy and society. The way back to normality therefore is still a long one.
