New threats to stability in the Yugoslav successor states

The article "New threats to stability in the Yugoslav successor states" was written by Prof. Stefano Bianchini for the journal International Affairs - Forum. The Balkans was the focus of the Fall 2009 special report of IA-Forum, an issue combining articles with interviews to well-known scholars and diplomats to analyze and generate discussion on today Balkan countries.

Prof. Bianchini's article focuses on growing social and political tensions in the Balkans as a consequence of the world economic crisis, the main argument being the negative impact on the future stability of the region given by the weakening of conditionality from the part of the European Union.
