DEMOCRACY AND THE STATE OF EMERGENCY - Responses to the Corona Crisis in the Western Balkans

While the anti-Corona measures are being relaxed in most countries, five countries of the region are preparing for elections. Tensions in the political debate, in the society and in some cases also between the countries of the region are rising.

The Corona virus crisis is in a way a mirror held up to each country revealing its strengths and weaknesses as well as its state of democracy. 

Today the third edition in the Democracy and the State of Emergency series is published by Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) Dialogue Southeast Europe office in Sarajevo.
The reports cover the situation of “Democracy and the State of Emergency” in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia, and Slovenia.
