Limits to the European Union’s Normative Power in a Post-conflict Society: EULEX and Peacebuilding in Kosovo (SpringerBriefs in Population Studies)

by Rok Zupančič

By shedding light on EULEX - the EU mission to Kosovo – this open access book investigates the EU’s peacebuilding activities in that country, in the light of the normative power theory in the post-conflict setting and peacebuilding theory. Ten years after the massive engagement of the EU in the country torn by war, the authors critically assess the effects of the EU projecting its normative power – the enforcement of its standards, ‘good’ or ‘bad’ – through the EULEX mission, taking into consideration also the local aspects, so far neglected in this field of research. Inspecting thoroughly the EULEX activities in the police, customs and judiciary sector, the authors reveal that the mission can contribute to a positive change, but only in those cases which do not request a heavy political involvement and broad leverage by other international players (for example in improving standards of work in police and customs). When it comes to the most serious cases of organized crime, corruption and war crimes, EULEX, however, has not been able to address them effectively due to several internal mission’s deficiencies and external factors; the perceived ineffectiveness of EULEX among the local population led to the lowering of trust not only in this CSDP mission, but also in the EU in general.  This open access book offers a comprehensive assessment of the EULEX mission, based on two Horizon2020 research projects: IECEU - Improving the Effectiveness of Capabilities in EU Conflict Prevention, and KOSNORTH – The European Union and its Normative Power in a Post-conflict Society: A Case Study of Northern Kosovo (Marie Sklodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship). As such it is an invaluable resource for scholars, students and policymakers interested in security questions in South Eastern Europe and EU external action.

Don’t Say we didn’t Know

by Amos Gvirtz

The Israeli – Palestinian conflict – a new approach!This book is formulated with the understanding that on both sides of the Israeli – Palestinian conflict there are people who want the same thing: peace and protection of human rights. This fact is also what inspires the author to address some very moral questions and raise constructive and productive explanations about:Why don’t people want to know about their own country’s crimes?Why do Human Rights and Peace movements’ activities evoke such strong opposition?This book focuses on the positive aspects of those questions and takes a deeper look into those few movements that were successful, while analyzing what enabled them to turn into massive movements creating major change. The book emphasizes the fact that there can be a way to reach what people on both sides desire – peace and offers a vision of "escalation of nonviolence" to make it happen.

Trump’s Inverted World View: Donald Trump Puts America in Harm’s Way, while “War is Over?” (If You Want It?)

by Dave Masko

Trump’s Inverted World View, by Dave Masko. How can we save the world from Oppenheimer’s deadly toy; while there is no monopoly in common sense when it comes to anyone winning a nuclear war. Meanwhile, there is real fear that America is governed by a “Secret State” pulling President Trump’s strings to wage world war for profit and more world domination power. Why else would Trump risk World War III by provoking war on two fronts: war with Russia and war with North Korea? “There is a sense that dirty secrets are being kept from the citizenry because of Trump’s skewed inverted world view; while the frankly weird events that are now happening to push our country towards war can be prevented if the American people decided to no longer ‘normalize’ the bizarre acts of this madman president,” says sisters Maria, Frieda and Rosalind Gonzales; while decrying Trump administration war polices during recent “Women March on Washington anti-Trump protests. The Gonzales sisters explained in a face-to-face “new journalism” interview on Easter Sunday 2017 eve that “we’re not sure if this will be our last Easter on Earth because we fear Trump is ready to declare war on North Korea or Russia if he gets pissed off? That’s the cloud of fear that we and all Americans live under. No wonder we cannot sleep?” The Trump administration doctrine is dangerous because it does not “Imagine” peace; while John Lennon believed “War is Over! If You Want It.” Lennon would take issue with Donald Trump’s saber-rattling because the late Beatle warned “Watch your thoughts for they become words. Choose your words for they become actions. Understand your actions for they become habits. Study your habits for they become your character. Develop your character for it will become your destiny.” Sadly, this billionaire bully boy known as “the Donald,” gives no quarter when it comes to understanding how Trump threats can become “a war reality,” explains longtime “new journalism” reporter Saul Ackroyd who, at age 89, still remembers World War II and “Hitler sounding a lot like Trump today as war and talk of war fills the airwaves. Ackroyd is a member of the famed “Rutherford Institute” that is decided to the defense of civil liberties and human rights; while this reporter is offering selected new journalism essays to ask where’s the outrage in April 2017 as this billionaire “fake president” leads the country into another world war? As Lennon asserted, “All we are saying is give peace a chance.”

How Generations Remember: Conflicting Histories and Shared Memories in Post-War Bosnia and Herzegovina (Global Diversities)

by Monika Palmberger

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city. Drawing on several years of ethnographic fieldwork, it offers a vivid account of how personal and collective memories are utterly intertwined, and how memories across the generations are reimagined and ‘rewritten’ following great socio-political change. Focusing on both Bosniak-dominated East Mostar and Croat-dominated West Mostar, it demonstrates that, even in this ethno-nationally divided city with its two divergent national historiographies, generation-specific experiences are crucial in how people ascribe meaning to past events. It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia and Herzegovina has witnessed have led to alterations in memory politics, not to mention disparities in the life situations faced by the different generations in present-day post-war Mostar. This in turn has created variations in memories along generational lines, which affect how individuals narrate and position themselves in relation to the country's history. This detailed and engaging work will appeal to students and scholars of anthropology, sociology, political science, history and oral history, particularly those with an interest in memory, post-socialist Europe and conflict studies.
