New Balkan Politics » No.18 - 2019


Dear Readers,

The journal New Balkan Politics, after a few years of pause, is in front of you again. The reason for our absence has been financial. The magazine is independent and non-profit, with free access to the site, meaning that we apply for donations. Any donation is welcome and will be used in order to promote political thought and analytical way of thinking among scholars, students, journalists and the public in general.
