Title Unfinished Peace. Report on the international commission on the Balkans
Author Tindemans, Leo (ed.)
Publisher Washington : Aspen Institute, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
Annotation Drawing openly its inspiration from the 1913 Carnegie commission, this book contains a final report of the International Commission for the Balkans (consisted of Leo Tindemans, Lloyd Cutler, Bronislaw Geremek, John Roper, Theo Sommer, Simone Veil and David Anderson), created with the ambition to analyze the causes of the war, as well as to assess the current situation and make policy recommendations for the future. Although the introductory chapter discusses various views on the connection of ethnicity, nationalism and war and explicitly rejects the “ancient hatred” argument, the report is overall inspecting into warfare in the former Yugoslavia as a phenomenon typical for the Balkans, much in the spirit of the first Carnegie commission’s findings. Drawing the general conclusions out of this experience, the commission implied that ethnic violence is a likely outcome of the nation-state building in a multiethnic environment, and that such currents should be confronted with the firm response of the international community.
