Regional Cooperation, Peace Enforcement, and the Role of the Treaties in the Balkans

By S. Bianchini, J. Marko, C. Nation and M. Uvalic


More than the years after the conclusion of the Dayton accords, the treaty regimes pieced together by the international community to sustain a fragile peace in the Balkans after te disintegration of former Yugoslavia have begun to fray, but no comprehensive program for a new regional order has been crafted to replace them. This timely study evaluates the state of post-conflict peace building efforts in Southeastern Europe and highlights the need to look beyond existing legal frameworks if peaceful reconstruction in the Balkan region is to be sustained. Drawn from the proceedings of a major international conference, the essays assembled here represent the perspectives of both policymakers and academic scholars, and include a broad and representative sampling of perspectives from within the region itself. The Balkans is entering a new phase of post-conflict development where old solutions and inherited structures are losing relevance. This study seeks to define positive alternatives within a broad-based regional framework. It should be essential reading for all those interested in the future of Europe and southeastern European area
