Political legitimacy in crisis: Reflections on Romania, Macedonia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina
In recent years, Romania, Macedonia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina all experienced massive public protests, directed against the political elites. While all cases questioned the legitimacy of the political system and the behaviour of the politicians, they differed in many aspects, not least in the results that they were to produce. This panel takes a comparative look at these recent internal crises and seeks to illustrate commonalities and differences. Cvete Koneska will look at the developments in Macedonia, Gruia Badescu at those in Romania, while Bosnia and Herzegovina will be the focus of Jessie Hronešová’s talk.
