Abstract

Since the Thessaloniki European Council in 2003, all Western Balkan countries have been, although at different paces, on their way towards membership in the European Union. In an interdisciplinary approach including the research of historians, political scientists, experts on conflict prevention and peace building, economy, and law, this books gives an analysis of the status quo of this process. The development that led to the disaster are retraced and promising attempts to overcome this past are described. By now, European integration has become the central "development and reconciliation project" for the region. Yet, manifold problems - some of them "home-made", others due to external factors - still need to be solved. The future role of the International Community in this process also remains to be defined.
