Join us for the last lecture of this year's Fall Series!

"Breaking Up Has Been Hard to Do: Yugoslavia as a Case Study"
Tuesday, October 27
7:00 - 8:30PM

Though over twenty years have passed, the breakup of the former Yugoslavia still invites questions.  What, why, and how did the breakup occur?  What were the consequences of the breakup?  And how might violence that occurs in state breakup be minimized? In this series, our speakers will use the former Yugoslavian state as a case study in which to ask these questions and more.
Tuesday, October 27
To understand why Yugoslavia broke apart, one must first answer the question of why its constituent parts came together in the first place.
 
In his analysis, Dr. Gordan Vurusic, Political Science Professor at Grand Rapids Community College, will try to identify the conditions under which the South Slavic nations created Yugoslavia and how a combination of slow entropy and sudden political changes on the local and global levels led to new independent countries.
