International Journal for Social Sciences & Humanities
In its fifth year of publication, the Contemporary Issues journal continues its multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary orientation and therefore includes papers which cover a wide range of topics and research interests. This issue represents a turning point in our editorial policy. Starting with the next issue, the journal will only cover contemporary issues related to Southeastern Europe. Additionally, we will only accept papers in political science, sociology and contemporary history. This change derives from the need for better international visibility of the journal, as well as the editorial goal of focusing on Southeastern Europe.
This issue includes a treatise on the nature of nationalism during democratic transition in Croatia, an analysis of different kinds of genocide, with a special focus on the Armenian Genocide as a first modern genocide. Further, the issue brings a paper on recent development of NATO-EU cooperation, an article on the diplomatic and theoretic profile of the Turkish foreign minister Ahmet Davutoglu, as well as a research report on the transmission of war memories from parents to children in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This issue also includes book reviews on EU Balkans policy and language policy in the Second Yugoslavia.
