  Planned Policy or Primitive Balkanism? A Local Contribution to the Ethnography of the War in Bosnia-Herzegovina
 
 
Titel: Planned Policy or Primitive Balkanism? A Local Contribution to the Ethnography of the War in Bosnia-Herzegovina
Auteur: Bax, Mart
Verschenen in: Ethnos
Paginering: Jaargang 65 (2000) nr. 3 pagina's 317-340
Jaar: 2000-11-01
Inhoud: There is a tendency among social scientists and others to interpret the recent war and the related 'ethnic cleansing' in Bosnia-Herzegovina in terms of a political policy carefully orchestrated from above and systematically carried out. Whatever eruptions of (war) violence might deviate from this interpretation are generally viewed as primitive Balkanism, pointless acts, banditism or mental aberrations. Adopting a long-term historical perspective, this article describes a violence process whose final result can be seen as the ethnic homogenization of a local community, but its dynamics cannot directly be attributed to a policy implemented from above. Rather its course can largely be traced back to clan vendettas and local faction fighting in the context of an emerging pilgrimage regime. The case illustrates that a systematic study 'from below' is crucial to a better understanding of the dynamics and the developmental logic of the processes of 'ethnic cleansing' in this part of ex-Yugoslavia.
