2014-12
Becker, Joachim
The article analyses the space for development alternatives in three successor states of Yugoslavia – Slovenia, Croatia and Serbia. Potential space of development alternatives have been opened by the present crisis. The article starts with a comparative analysis of the precrisis development models and their crises. The political responses to the crises have been shaped by socio-economic structures, the mode of articulation of these economies into the international economy and the constellation of political actors. The article analyses the anticrisis policies of the three governments, social protest movements, and their proposals for alternative economic policies and development alternatives from a comparative perspective.
