The Study Basic Instinct – The Case for More NATO in The Western Balkans is a result of a year long research conducted under the CEAS project Continued fulfillment of IPAP Commitments – Stepping closer to NATO, supported by the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) from the USA.
The Study particularly addresses four underlying issues common to all countries of the Western Balkans: incomplete transitional justice processes; incomplete security sector reforms; constitutionally or otherwise embedded solutions that propel an illiberal politicization of ethnicities; and internationally led or sponsored processes that may serve short-term goals, but are implemented in a way that undermines the separation of powers, strengthening of independent institutions and decision-making processes in already poorly governed countries of the Region.
