Strategies of symbolic nation-building in West-Balkan states: intents and results

Opis projekta
After the fall of communism the national idea in virtually all West Balkan states is strongly contested. Various population elements have different ideas about what kind of state this is and whose interests it should serve. For state leaders it is important to rally the population behind the state, to ensure that they attach their loyalty to it. At the same time, these leaders often hail from certain support groups whom they are tempted to favor and to give a privileged symbolic position in the nation-building project. The objective of this project is to determine the strategies, strength, and effectiveness of nation-building in the West Balkans. In a first step the variations of nation-building activities will be mapped. In a second step the impact of the nation-building strategies will be measured and compared using new survey data. We will concentrate on the manufacturing and manipulation of symbols (broadly understood) as elements in nation building strategies.
