This book represents a number of the author's speeches from 1999 to 2008 on the Euro-Atlantic future of the Western Balkans, the area that Slovenia borders on. The title of the book reflects more... More > hope than naïve belief that the Western Balkans could become just another boring part of Europe, by urging the people and especially the leaders of the Region towards Euro-Atlantic integration. The texts also plead for a common strategy of NATO and the E.U. to bring all the 7 countries of the Western Balkans into both organizations. While initially the author encouraged these countries to decide on their own to start towards Euro-Atlantic integration and even "invented" a sort of a GPS navigation system so they would not veer off the road, he later on came to believe that it was necessary that they all join both NATO and the EU. If they were able to pick and choose between the two organizations this could prove to be both detrimental to the Region as well as to already poor relations between NATO and the EU.< Less

More > terrible legacy of physical ruin and psychological devastation. Unfolding against the background of the end of cold war bipolarity, the new Balkan wars sounded a discordant counterpoint to efforts to construct a more harmonious European order, were a major embarrassment for the international institutions deemed responsible for conflict management, and became a preoccupation for the powers concerned with restoring regional stability. After more than a decade of intermittent hostilities the conflict has been contained, but only as a result of significant external interventions and the establishment of a series of de facto international protectorates, patrolled by UN, NATO, and EU sponsored peacekeepers with open-ended mandates.< Less
