Конфликт в Боснии и Герцеговине: этноцентризм vs евроцентризм

С. 100-115.

This work is devoted to the analysis of the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina
through the party prism. It were the key political parties of Bosnia
and Herzegovina: Serbian Democratic Party (SDP), Croatian Democratic
Union (HDZ) and Bosnia-centric Party of Democratic Action (SDA), that
played the most serious role in the mobilization and organization of three
opposing ethnic groups – Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats at the beginning of
the Bosnian war and after the formal end of the conflict in 1995. Analysis of
the post-war rhetoric of the Bosnian parties and their actions in the position
of the leading political forces of the country are the basis of our criticism of
the widespread thesis that “the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina has been
completed by eliminating of its causes”. In addition, the analysis showed
that the exogenous factor of European integration was the only unifying
element for the ethno-centric parties of the Bosnian parliament.
