The name dispute and the Prespa Agreement

resolution. Matthew Nimitz, the appointed UN mediator in the conflict, serving in this post since 1997, along with the negotiating teams of both countries, shared in the optimism that the two countries could finally reach a mutual agreement and resolve the name dispute. This conflict had propelled Greece to prevent Macedonia's international inclusion in EU and NATO structures (this latter in violation of the UN interim agreement), and with the signing of the so-called Prespa Agreement on July 2018 the EU representatives had (almost) explicitly promised that the country

EU border-making and anti-LGBT mobilisation in Serbia

Christianity, traditional family and the ‘Kosovo issue’ The processes of interlocking homophobia with anti-EU discourses in Serbia cannot be understood without taking into consideration the underlying tension between the West – addressed either as the US, NATO or the EU – and Serbia. It may be argued that the attitude to the EU became closely interlocked and interchangeably addressed

Displaced borders in Skopje and the Colorful Revolution

materialized in the buildings and monuments, and thus become tidemarks that blur the distinction between borders and boundaries. This tidal porosity expedites, intentionally or not, different nationalist ideologies, and also protests that react against these ideologies and/or responses to the wider international community that has supervised the revolution of the name conflict and also the process of RN Macedonia's accession to NATO and the EU. In addition to viewing the “Skopje 2014” project as a bordering apparatus, both popular and scientific arguments

of knowledge politics, these bases are sovereign overseas territory of the United Kingdom. Military bases of the colonial power that occupied the island until 1960, they are also bases of a NATO power in a non-aligned country, a non-NATO member. Flying from there, for instance, RAF planes bombed Yemen in 2017. This is one more case in which a small island can become a global player. It is one among many exceptions that

Organization (NATO), Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Eurozone) has provided the organising logic of the post-Soviet state project in Latvia. Every one of these targets promptly replaced the previous goal once membership was achieved, giving a new stimulus for reforms and a way of sustaining this familiar tempo. The idea of a ‘2-speed Europe’, occasionally pronounced in Brussels, is permanently hanging in the air as a threat that, despite all the efforts, ‘the East’ is not going to keep pace with ‘the West’.2 This temporal lag is an idea that

signed a treaty allowing it to join NATO, as well as a convention on cultural exchanges between Germany and France, allowing for student and university trips and the support of language learning. The French mission’s work extended to the whole of the German Federal Republic and, without any particular difficulties, to the German Democratic Republic as well. The Soviet authorities in East Berlin were very helpful in this up until the uprising on 17 June 1953. From this date onwards, exhumations were no longer authorized in the German Democratic Republic.27 To our knowl

time-space that transcended polity borders. They believed in the future of Kosovo, in a highly patriotic, not very pragmatic sense. Those who did not save money to send to relatives at home or who disregarded their familial bonds were considered ‘lost’ to the community (Dahinden 2005). After 2000: the difficulties of creating new futures here and there The military engagement of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Kosovo in spring 1999 ended Serbian dominance there. The social conditions in Kosovo were profoundly changed. Under the protection of the

Desire and the border in the southern Balkans

Due to the name dispute, the official name was Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) under which the Republic of Macedonia was accepted in the UN in 1993. It was clear, however, that without resolving the name conflict, Greece would block the Republic of Macedonia’s EU and NATO membership. Finally, on 17 June 2018 the Macedonian and Greek Foreign Ministers, Nikola

had already become ‘sexualised’. Feelings of resentment also simmered over other pressures on Serbia by the EU and ‘the West’ (the US and NATO primarily) that many in Serbia perceive as insults to their national dignity. The clear and forceful linking of LGBT rights to EU entry made the desires for different pasts and futures, national and EU-oriented, even more pressing. Kahlina and Ristivojević
