Chapter 10: The lessons not learned from the Yugoslav dismemberment
This provocative chapter focuses on three main lessons not learned from the Yugoslav collapse by the Western societies. In effect, a prolonged economic crisis and an ineffective governance in multinational and intercultural society may trigger unexpected partition effects, especially when policy makers begin to mobilize passions and popular support against shared institutions and the “other”, identified as those mainly responsible for the societal difficulties. This was the mechanism that led Yugoslavia to partition and war. But similar mechanisms are already in place within the EU and within some of member-states.
