The Past as Future

Post-Yugoslav Space in the Early Twenty-First Century

(p.54) (p.55) 3 The Past as Future
After Yugoslavia

Dejan Djokicć

Stanford University Press

This chapter traces the development of the Yugoslav state and the Yugoslav idea from the early twentieth century to the present day. The Yugoslav idea evolved during the interwar period and survived the Second World War to reemerge, together with the Yugoslav state, in 1945, in its “brotherhood and unity” version. Even following the violent and most likely final disintegration of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, a common space survives and indeed appears to have been emerging stronger in recent years, in the shape of cultural, economic, athletic, and political cooperation among former Yugoslavs. If, or possibly when, all post-Yugoslav states join the EU, the common Yugoslav space would be likely further established.

Keywords:   the Yugoslav state, common space, disintegration of Yugoslavia, common Yugoslav identity, unification, Yugoslavism, Corfu Declaration, Yugoslav Committee, the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes
