American Leadership and the Balkans, 1995–2008

(p.324) 33 Turning Point

James W. Pardew

University Press of Kentucky

The breakup of Yugoslavia is a turning point in international relations with consequences far beyond the region. The US intervention in the former Yugoslavia reestablishes American leadership in Europe. It revitalizes and reforms NATO and the EU and creates new relationships with the UN. The international effort in the former Yugoslavia creates seven new nations oriented toward Western values. Importantly, the US engagement creates an opportunity to replace ethnic conflict with democracy in the Balkans. While the US should remain engaged, success depends on the commitment of local leaders to change.

Keywords:   consequences, American leadership, NATO, EU, UN, Western values, democracy, leaders
