DUTCH DECISION-MAKING ON THE INTERVENTION IN THE YUGOSLAV WARS (1990-1995) A Critique on the Security Theory
MetadataShow full item record
The Yugoslav wars were a complex series of conflicts that took place mostly between 1990 and 1995. Many different political actors securitized the issue by calling out the atrocities and violations of human rights that occurred. Dutch politicians played a significant role here and participation by the Netherlands in interventions in former Yugoslavia will be the focus of this essay. This political process of Dutch involvement in Yugoslavia will also serve as a case study to analyse and criticize the so-called security theory, proposed by the Copenhagen School.
