In Pursuit of Unity: The West and the Breakup of Yugoslavia





Case study 2

Yugoslavia broke up twenty years ago, but the story of its disintegration and of the international community’s response to the carnage which followed it remains relevant today.

a Better Understanding of the
Disintegration of the SFRY

The use of ideology in Serbia’s
culture, 1986-2016





Case study 7

Popper’s observations about common tendencies of the policies of contemporary totalitarianisms as illustrative of a closed society are almost completely applicable to the culture in Serbia from mid-1980s till the late 1990s: and that is to prevent any outside influence that could jeopardize the rigidity of collective taboos, anti-humanism standing against all egalitarian, democratic and individualistic initiatives, anti-universalism and particularism in the service of the partition between “us” and “others” that dams introduction of universalistic tendencies.
