Kosovo – Pristina’s Potemkin ‘North Kosova’ - by Gerard M. Gallucci - Pristina’s demand that UNMIK close its office in north Mitrovica, combined with attempts to install its own Potemkin administration in its place, constitute a fresh assault on peace and stability.
 
Salience and emotion - by David B. Kanin - Progress toward more effective management of regional disputes will be possible only if leaders emerge inside the region capable and willing to channel their own and their followers’ emotions toward negotiations everyone accepts from the outset will lead to painful sacrifices on everyone’s part.
 
The West, Milosevic and the collapse of Yugoslavia – a response to ... - by Josip Glaurdic - Josip Glaurdic responds to a review of his new book, ‘The Hour of Europe: Western Powers and the Breakup of Yugoslavia’, by David B. Kanin, whose own response is also presented below.
 


The war of narratives - by Dusan Babic - Different historical accounts produce different war-inspired and post-war narratives, particularly narratives of victimhood and collectivised guilt, which undermine attempts to foster tolerance and reconciliation in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
