1. Besic, Amina. Har det ens hänt? : En studie om läroböcker gällande krigen i forna Jugoslavien 1991-2001.

Degree: Cultural Sciences, 2020, Linnaeus University

The purpose of the thesis is to examine how textbooks for the upper secondary school course history 1b depict the civil war in the former Yugoslavia. Five of the six books examined are aimed at the history 1b course, but all are adapted to the new curriculum GY11. The analysis of the material focuses on differences in factual content as well as what kind of use of history that has been utilized by the authors. The results shows that there are some substantial differences in terms of content regarding events and key players who were active in the war. The dates for when the conflicts started, the number of displaced people, the selected events as well as the key actors in the conflict vary significantly between the textbooks. Finally, a questionnaire survey shows that teachers around Sweden feel that they have insufficient time, which has resulted in a situation of priorities where the Yugoslav wars have almost no place in teaching.

2. Tunjic, Matija. Teaching the Yugoslav Wars with young adult novels.

Degree: 2018, University of Vienna

Beruhend auf der Annahme, dass Jugendromane geeignete Quellen für einen auf der Theorie der Friedenserziehung fußenden Unterricht sein können, untersucht diese Diplomarbeit englischsprachige Jugendliteratur, die sich mit den Jugoslawienkriegen befasst. Zwei Jugendromane werden näher beleuchtet, nämlich Under the Sun von Arthur Dorros und No Roof in Bosnia von Els de Groen. Dabei werden die Texte aus literaturwissenschaftlicher Sicht analysiert, indem wesentliche Textmerkmale wie Handlung, Charaktere oder Erzählsituation und -raum untersucht werden. Die Ergebnisse dieser Analysen werden jeweils mit geschichtswissenschaftlichen Interpretationen der Jugoslawienkriege in Verbindung gebracht, um so das didaktische Potenzial der Texte für einen von der Friedenserziehung geleiteten Unterricht aufzuzeigen. Die Grundannahme wird bestätigt, wobei die Arbeit zu kleineren Vorbehalten Stellung nimmt.

Led by the assumption that young adult literature can be a useful resource in a peace education-oriented teaching of the Yugoslav Wars, this thesis examines not only English-language young adult literature covering this particular conflict but also the didactic potential of these literary representations, be it in the EFL or the history classroom. By looking more closely into two novels, namely Arthur Dorros’ Under the Sun and Els de Groen’s No Roof in Bosnia, this paper analyzes the texts from a literary perspective, examining crucial textual features such as plot, characters, narrative situation, and space. It subsequently brings the findings of the literary analysis into a relation with historical interpretations of the Yugoslav Wars in order to investigate the texts’ possible benefits to a peace educational approach in class. The key assumption is confirmed with only minor reservations that are commented on in the thesis.

3. Doty, Daniel Jonas. European Union Foreign Policy Construction During the Yugoslav Wars Using the Multiple Autonomous Actors Decision Unit.

Degree: PhD, Political Science, 2011, Miami University

This study analyzes the foreign policy of the European Union during the Yugoslav Wars of the 1990s. This series of crises coincided with the European Union’s creation of formal mechanisms so it could harmonize and create foreign policy positions between its member-states. I study the EU’s involvement in three specific crises during this period: the secession crisis of Slovenia and Croatia in 1991, the Bosnian War of 1994 – 95, and the Kosovo War of 1999. The focus here is the process of foreign policy decision-making within the EU. The conceptual framework employed is the “ultimate decision unit” proposed by Margaret Hermann and Charles Hermann, specifically their third decision unit composed of multiple autonomous actors (MAA). Government decisions resulting from the MAA unit are the products of negotiations between separate and autonomous individuals, groups, and coalitions in a system in which no single actor can force compliance on the others and no overarching authoritative body exists. EU foreign policy decisions are indeed the result of such negotiations between autonomous or sovereign actors thus justifying the use of the MAA model. Although the MAA model is proposed for studying national foreign policy making, my dissertation demonstrates how EU decision-making during the Yugoslav wars fits the same pattern of decision-making depicted in the MAA model. Thus I conclude that EU foreign policy can be studied using some models of foreign policy analysis. Regarding the process of EU foreign policy making, I conclude that where there is greater initial agreement among the members of the EU’s ultimate decision unit about the EU’s proper role in a particular event and where there is agreement about the attendant behaviors for that role, the EU will be more successful in articulating and implementing a common foreign policy. Where there is less initial agreement among the decision-actors about the EU’s role and behavior, the less successful the European Union will be in articulating and implementing any common foreign policy. Advisors/Committee Members: Neack, Laura (Committee Chair).
