Eu and the balkans policies of integration and disintegration leila simona talani chapter one 5 balkan nationalisms in the european integration processes ambiguous impacts and controversial outcomes maria bakalova abstract introduction contextualising the problem 1 answers and arguments 2 conceptualising nationalism 3. Integration and disintegration are the two poles of the economic political and security discourse in an area the balkans and southern eastern europe see which over the past fifteen years has been the stage of dramatic events. Integration processes and the eu policy on the balkans in particular mitigate balkan nationalisms the first chapter of the book questions this conclusion and argues that european integration processes and various promises and incentives from the union have a considerable and yet ambiguous impact on balkan nationalisms. Summary competing forces are driving events in yugoslavia internally the conflicts between integration and disintegration along ethnic and historical lines hold sway externally the unclear commitment to the balkans on the part of the united states and europe exacerbates internal divisions. But because of the lack of common european policy and strategy these individual successes were insufficient to permit to stop the yugoslavian wars particularly in croatia and in bosnia herzegovina to conclude it is obvious that the disintegration of yugoslavia had done the european union much harm
