Ethnic Minorities in Serbia

Book Chapter

Ramet, Sabrina P. & Ola Listhaug (2009) Ethnic Minorities in Serbia, in Serbia Matters: Domestic Reforms and European Integration. Baden-baden: (157–164).

Serbia Matters presents policy essays on Serbia’s post-Milošević

era written by internationally recognised authors, policymakers,

academics and political analysts actively engaged in the Balkans


Since 2000 Serbia has moved from a decade of wars

and delayed transition towards European integration. The book

assesses the country’s present state of affairs, recent achievements and future challenges. It also offers pertinent analyses and compelling arguments as to why Serbia’s accession to the European Union matters as much for Belgrade as it does for the whole Western Balkans.


This book is written with the aim to persuade both Serbia’s leaders

and citizens and those Member States of the European Union who

are hit by ‘enlargement fatigue’ that the country ought to have its

rightful place in the EU and that there is no alternative to the

reform process.
