Event description: YPFP London is delighted to invite you to the exclusive launch of Dr Radeljic’s first book publication:  Europe and collapse of Yugoslavia: The Role of non-state actors and European Diplomacy.


This fresh, groundbreaking study explores the role of Slovenes, Croats and other diasporas to show how non-state actors played a pivotal role in the crisis, focusing on their capacity to contribute and affect policy-making at EC level. Dr Radeljic shows how the distinct lack of direction and inadequate political mechanisms within the EC enabled these actors to take centre stage, and how EC paralysis precipitated bloody conflict in the Balkans.

His main research interests focus on the study of European Union politics and Eastern Europe.  In addition to being an expert in Slavonic, EU, and Eastern European politics, Branislav is interested in and has written extensively about the presence of Islam in the EU and its impact on future EU policy-making.
