Serbia and the World

CIVIL SOCIETY, SOCIAL CAPITAL AND THE EUROPEANIZATION OF SERBIA
Žarko Paunović
International Politics, 2011 62(1142):5-17
Abstract ▼
The paper shows that for a successful achievement of the project of European integration of Serbia another important aspect of this process is very significant and that is Europeanization of Serbia. Thus, in fact, we make distinction between European integration (the neo-institutional approach) and Europeanization as a deeper social and political integration of the society (the normative approach). In this narrower interpretation of the Europeanization process, which implies the acceptance of “European political values“ and deliberative democracy we see the important role of the civil society. There is no integrated political community (based on civil trust, civil virtues and values) without its active role. A weak civil society and a low level of social capital (trust, associations and organizations) are a significant obstacle to faster Europeanization of Serbia.

THE LIBYAN CRISIS AND ITS CONSEQUENCES
Slobodan Janković
International Politics, 2011 62(1142):30-51
Abstract ▼
The protests in egypt and Tunisia resulted in a military coup or a relatively peaceful handover of power, respectively, after decades of presidential authoritarianism. Their authorities resigned without any foreign military intervention and had been fomented by rising food prices. The military intervention in Libya, actions, diplomacy and stances of major power actors brought out the weakness of international law, the crisis of UN institutions, and in particular, the eU foreign policy. The current Libyan crisis and actions of several Western powers further erode the sovereignty, thus announcing the transformation of the current world order. The author questions and analyses the behaviour of the eU in particular, pointing and asking the reasons for the military intervention.

International Politics, 2011 62(1142):52-62
Abstract ▼
When the concept of societal security focused on social community and identity as its main value was constructed, a deeper political and security analysis of social phenomena and processes was possible to make. In the paper, the authors use the concept of societal security to analyse the actual process of the Republic of Turkey’s accession to the european Union with special emphasis on the attitudes and statements of the eU and political representatives of its member states who securitize, by rethoric, Turkey’s accession in order to protect the european identity.

DEVELOPMENT AND PROSPECTS OF MONETARY INTEGRATIONS IN THE WORLD
Dragana Marković, Srđan Furtula
International Politics, 2011 62(1142):94-108
Abstract ▼
in order to achieve macroeconomic stability, economic policy of a state should be focused on the coordinated and efficient use of its instruments. Monetary policy is one of the basic instruments of economic policy, whose objectives are also the targets of monetary policy. Therefore, each country seeks to retain sovereignty in the conduct of monetary policy and the exclusive right of issuing money and managing the flow of its supply. nevertheless, from various political and economic reasons states accept the loss of monetary sovereignty and decide to join together and form some form of monetary union. in the past, the monetary arrangements differed in terms of currency, functions and organization of the central bank and the degree of political integration. although they applied different models of monetary integration, monetary unions most often resulted from the establishment of political unions and compromises. Unlike them, the economic and Monetary Union, which was formed in 1999 together with the single european central bank and single currency is a sort of experiment because it was formed without previously establishing a political union. The analysis of development and prospects of monetary integration in the world helps our country create a strategy of integration to europe. The uniqueness of the european monetary integration and the complex political and economic structure of Serbia indicate that it will not be an easy process of integration.
