Please find below links to a selection of articles published by TransConflict throughout December:
- Serbia’s Sandzak at odds with Belgrade - by Justin Vela - calls for greater autonomy for Sandžak – particularly by the head of the Islamic Community in Serbia, Mufti Muamer Zukorlic – continue to place Serbia’s predominantly Bosniak south-west corner at odds with Belgrade.
- Bosniak nationalism – the end of exceptionalism? - by Emma Plant - by ignoring the manipulation of Bosniak identity, particularly by ex-president Haris Silajdzic, the international community has contributed to the destabilization of Bosnia and Herzegovina’s current framework.
- Kosovo chooses its future course - by Ian Bancroft - the outcome of Kosovo’s first general elections since declaring independence will be key to determining Pristina’s willingness to engage constructively in forthcoming talks with Serbia.
- December 10th – human rights (boycott) day - by Miloš Bogičević - it remains to be seen whether future generations will be proud or ashamed of the Serbian government’s decision to boycott the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in the face of Chinese opposition (also available in Serbian).
