Vojvodina Province in Serbia already enjoys partial autonomy,including an independent judiciary and special economic privileges. Yet Vojvodina's full autonomous status was revoked under former Serbian president Slobodan Milosevic.Now the Serbian government is trying to maintain control. Belgrade wants to prevent Vojvodina from becoming a sovereign state with Novi Sad as its capital. Serbian nationalists feel they have made enough concessions and fear that Vojvodina will go the way of Kosovo and declare independence.
The Serbian anti-regime youth movement Otpor is an inspiration to the Tunisian and Egyptian demonstrators who recently took to the streets to call for greater democracy in their countries. In 2000, the activities of the student-led Serbian uprising, Otpor! led to the overthrow of dictator Slobodan Milošević.Some of its members went on to set up the Centre for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies, which provides training and workshops for pro-democracy activists in countries such as Egypt, Tunisia and Iraq. They teach the importance of following an idea rather than a person: and of having stamina and faith in peaceful change. And these days, student protestors can use the Internet to get organized.

Historically, the train link between Belgrade and Sarajevo was probably the most important one in the Balkans. Today the service lacks some of the comforts of yesteryear.The restaurant car is Serbian, but both of the other cars are Bosnian: one comes from the Serb-dominated political entity Republika Srpska while the other is from the Muslim-Croat Federation. The locomotive is changed every time the train crosses the border, slowing down the trip significantly. But the new train connection is symbolic -- showing that the former enemies are trying to improve their relationship.

Feb 1997 We closely follow the people behind the protest movement. For three months, protesters braved one of the coldest winters in Serbia to do battle with police truncheons and tear gas. Students, Miroslav and Maria, are learning to beat government sponsored repression with banners and marches. Maria explains that after the war and consequent economic crisis, Milosevic's annulment of local elections was "the last straw". Backed by their professors who suspended classes in protest, the students turned their faculty into an HQ and communicate with their supporters through newsletters and the Internet. But they remain cynical about the Opposition's commitment to democracy and blame politicians for the war in Yugoslavia. Consequently, they kept their rallies separate and emphasize that the...
The EU aims to start accession talks with Serbia in 2014, although a continuation of the process of reconciliation in the region remains a precondition. Reconciliation remains a thorny issue in Serbia, with militant nationalists opposing those with more pro-western views. There's still no assurance that Serbia will continue its progress toward Brussels and normalize relations with its former province, Kosovo.

The European Union has long been pressuring Balkan countries to do something to stem the influx of immigrants from the region. Now Serbia and Macedonia are planning drastic measures. Since the EU lifted visa restrictions on citizens of Serbia and Macedonia, many have been making their way to EU countries, and an increasing number have been applying for asylum. The EU has called upon Serbia and Macedonia to get the situation under control. Now the two countries are resorting to drastic measures: they want to penalize illegal immigration and abuse of asylum by their citizens. Their border police are to be allowed to confiscate passports and vehicles and impose a ban on entering the EU.
