Civic and Uncivic Values: Serbia in the Post-Milosevic Era

Excerpt

Our purpose in putting together this project has been to bring some clarity to the processes of transition in Serbia since the fall of Milošević. The working hypotheses are that Serbia cannot achieve stability or be integrated into the EU as long as it holds onto traditional, provincial, and nationalist values and that such values do not support a liberal democracy. We hope that this volume will hold strong interest for anyone interest in processes of political change in southeastern Europe or in aspirations to democracy and EU membership in that region.

This volume is the product of a conference held at the International Peace Research Institute in Oslo (PRIO) on 30–31 May 2008, as part of the work of PRIO's Centre for the Study of Civil War. We are grateful to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Norway for a generous grant in support of this conference and to the staff of PRIO, and especially Martha Snodgrass, Andrew Feltham, and Sigurd Ziegler, for their hard work to assure that the conference ran smoothly. In addition to those whose work is included herein, Snježana Milivojević and James Lyon also took part in the conference.

This is the third in a series of volumes devoted to value transformation and democracy in the Yugoslav successor states. Previous volumes were Democratic Transition in Slovenia: Value Transformation, Education, and Media, edited by Sabrina P. Ramet and Danica Fink-Hafner (Texas A&M University Press, 2006) and Democratic Transition in Croatia: Value Transformation, Education, and Media, edited by Sabrina P. Ramet and Davorka Matić (Texas A&M University Press, 2007). A volume devoted to post-1995 Bosnia-Herzegovina is in preparation.
