Societies in Conflict
The Contribution of Law and Democracy to Conflict ResolutionBook - 2000
Following the breakdown of the communist system, violent, often ethnic in origin, conflicts erupted in the Balkans, in the Caucasus and elsewhere. Europe was suddenly confronted with nationalist passions and violence not experienced since the Second World War. The present volume, based on a seminar held in Slovenia, analyses some of these conflicts, focusing on the Balkans. The authors explore to what extent law can contribute to a peaceful settlement and prevent wide-scale violations of human rights.
