Not at war?!?!
Unbelievably, Balkans improve...
After the break-up from Yugoslavia, the decade long internal disturbance seems to have settled down. Recently, a UN report on ‘Crime and its Impact on the Balkans’ concluded most positively that the Balkans have become a low-crime region and also are gradually trying to get into the league of some of the world’s most peaceful places. Nevertheless, the report further also warns that politics and organised crime will continue to hamper the region’s path to stability. Crimes like smuggling of drugs, guns and human trafficking is quite rampant. Over 100 tonnes of heroine are traded each year. Creditably, local murder rates fell by almost 50% in the last eight years [from 2,185 to 1,130].
The report further compares Romania with Switzerland in terms of safety and proves that the number of prisoners has gone down dramatically.
Human Rights Watch has also encouraged a country like Kosovo to cooperate with the EU to deploy a sensible rule-of-law mission, which may eventually reform the criminal justice system of the country. In a world full of wars, strife and clashes, the Balkan region is improving and becoming a case study for regions to follow.
