Spinning out of control (completed)

Rhetoric and violent conflict. Representations of 'self' – 'other' in the Yugoslav successor states.

About the project

The research project ' Spinning’ out of control: rhetoric and violent conflict. Representations of 'self' – 'other' in the Yugoslav successor states' will compare seven interethnic/interregional conflicts in the Yugoslav successor states with regard to how the 'Other' is represented in the public discourse.

Objectives

In particular we look for possible regularities in the relationship between types of rhetoric and types of outcomes (violent/non-violent).

The six conflicts we will study are: three cases of massive violence (Croatia 1991-92, Bosnia 1992-95, and Kosovo 1998-99), two cases of conflict with limited violence, Slovenia 1991 and Macedonia 2001 and one region which has experienced political tension, but without entering into a violent mode, Montenegro.
