DescriptionContentsAuthors

This book is about transformation in the framework of European integration. Specifically, the path of the Balkans to European integration is outlined, although the track is admittedly uncertain. The Balkan countries have acquired particular importance since the 1990s due to their domestic destabilization. The Balkans countries have been looking for good examples and ideas to pursue development and internal integration in destabilized and ethnically complex and conflicting areas.
