Political extremism (and particularly right wing political extremism) remains relatively insufficiently explored due to the fact that the phenomenon is controversial and hard to define. Its ambiguity and variability depending on time and spatial point of view further complicates its definition. Its structure is amorphous and eclectic as it often in...

Despite the fact that Macedonia achieved independence in a peaceful manner in 1991, its position has been continuously challenged in political, economic and security dimensions ever since. One of them is Islamic fundamentalism. In a country with over 1/3 of the population being Muslims (and still growing) this issue becomes a potential danger in th...

Conference Paper

Radicalism and radicalization in the Western Balkans are multifaceted phenomena and should be treated as such. They can be observed in politics, faith/religion, culture, and social relations. Although every aspect of radicalism is different, as a whole, it causes political and social destabilization. The nature and scope of this short paper do not...

Ostrożnie podchodziłbym do kwestii wybuchu nowej wojny na Bałkanach – mówi dr Marko Babić. Podkreśla jednak, że wojna lat 90. pozostawiła po sobie podziały w „Bałkańskim kotle”. Uważa, że większą rolę będą tu odgrywały nie kwestie lokalne, ale globalne. Koncepcje wpływów od atlantycystycznego, przez euroazjatycką po neoosmańską.

Serbia charakteryzuje się niestabilnością polityczną i państwową od początku swojej nowożytnej historii. Problemy z określeniem racjonalnego interesu narodowego, kwestie granic państwa, strategii rozwoju pokazują, że w tym kraju istnieją poważne problemy z utworzeniem syntezy społecznej rozumianej jako „wartość dodana” własnej historii – uczenie si...

Hazardzista. Zapalony piłkarz. Lubi rządzić i dyrygować. Mistrz batuty i Latający Kapitan w jednej osobie. Odkąd z hukiem wszedł na boisko, jest widoczny i aktywny, niezmordowany. (...) To główny napastnik, solista i wirtuoz, czasami wręcz żongler. Jerzy Buzek opisuje go jako niezwykle dynamicznego polityka, obdarzonego osobistą charyzmą. Dla jedny...

With the collapse of Yugoslavia, the Western Balkans region entered turbulent times. Seven countries 1 that had emerged as a result of the collapse had to determine their priorities.

Można traktować problem tożsamości jako problem różnic i podobieństw. W tym ujęciu tożsamość oznacza "relacje między dwoma lub więcej przedmiotami w sposób określony przez różnicę lub podobieństwo między nimi. Nie jest ona całkowicie stateczna, znajduje się w ciągłym ruchu i przechodzi przez różne zmiany". Zarówno jednostki, jak i grupy społeczne m...

Region bałkański charakteryzuje się różnorodnością etniczną, religijną, językową. W czasach wielkich zmian ustrojowych i ideologicznych jakimi był upadek świata zimnowojennego, różnorodność owa często staje się przyczyną sytuacji konfliktowych, także na płaszczyźnie aksjologicznej. Problemy tożsamości, kontrowersje przynależności kulturalnej i geog...

Sažetak: Mada je izvela uspješnu promjenu sistema i ekonomsku tranziciju, Poljska i dalje ostaje u vakumu shvatanja o društvenim vrijednostima – dakle bez jasnog aksiološkog projekta. U radu se obraća pažnja na istorijske korijeni toga stanja i faze transformacije u sferi aksiologije: od uticaja socijalističke, a zatim i demokratske anomije do proc...

Language is a social category and a fundamental instrument of communication. At the same time, it is a complicated and stratified social phenomenon: it is not only a basic medium of human communication, it also stimulates ethnic and/or national integration (as well as national mobilization).
