Abstract (type = abstract)
Observations of recent developments in a globalizing world emphasize the importance of nation building as both a policy and a topic of academic discussion. Most recent nation-building projects are the effort of developed democracies to promote democracy and democratic values around the globe. One prerequisite for the consolidation of democracy is the strong civil society. The core of civil societies is the NGO sector. Therefore, the role of NGOs promoting democracy and democratic values is of paramount importance. Nevertheless, the role of NGOs in several nation-building projects is understudied, and demands substantial academic scrutiny. Examples of nation building in transitional and post conflict societies such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia and elsewhere show little success. Literature suggests several reasons for the lack of NGOs’ success. This study focuses on the role of NGOs that promote democratic values as part of a strategy used to break the ethno-national political gridlock that cripples democratic changes in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Further, this study aims to incorporate globalization as a new dynamic in nation-building studies. Since Bosnia-Herzegovina is a post-conflict, post-communist, and transitional society, it make an excellent case study that can be applied to different geopolitical and socio-cultural contexts of nation-building. These findings, applied, could make nation-building more functional and less costly.
