The nation-buidling process in the West Balcans

In south eastern Europea the new nations ahve found their independence with a huge effort of nation-building instruments and civil
society assistance of the European Union, NATO and OScE ( Montenegro, Macedonia and Kosovo )
I will describe with empirical data the independence of the three states and the European programmes implemented to make the road to
Europe in order to become a assistance or associated state to the EU.The piece plan of Mahti Attissari of the Nobel prize winner and the political
interventions of the EU will be the next step. Macedonia gained its independence in with many corruption and American money and under
consideration of the Albanian language and the Albanian minority.For Albanian speaking people the agreemnt of OHRID and the use of the
language politics are part of a large importance and is implemented in the 2 states. The NATO and the EU stopped the wishes to enter the
EU. THe Kosovo declared its independence iin Feburary 2009 and are now under recognition in the whole world in order to get rid of
Serbia. This is no state of consideration in the next 10 years.
I will describe the EULEX group implementatinm the European military forces in peace work there and the administration buidling going on.
the main question is on how far the administration are civilzed after the military forces there, in duty of civil tasks even doing social scsiences
work. The Maritime culture of the Montenegro makes it like tha Kosovo being linked to Italy , incomparison Macedonia refers to its
common past to Greece.
