Join Elton Skendaj as he examines the role of international actors in constructing efficient state bureaucracies
This talk will focus on governance dilemmas and stability-democracy trade offs in post war contexts, by looking at processes of transformation in the Western Balkan countries. Using evidence from Kosovo, Serbia, and North Macedonia, Elton Skendaj looks at the role of international actors in building effective state bureaucracies, dilemmas in governing minority-majority relations, and the impact of group security and group status concerns on post war protests in Kosovo.
