The period after the Great War marked significant geopolitical perturbances in Europe. The collapse of empires, colonialism and the rise of communism and other extremist movements, opposed the liberal understandings of free market, democracy and national self-determination. In South Eastern Europe, the idea of shared South Slavic state brought together nations previously engaged on opposite sides in the War. Battles for political and national dominance, hegemony, clashes of different ideas and constant changes of alliances and internal borders of several shared states led towards further micro-geopolitical divisions in this part of the world. Attempts to make the idea of Yugo-Slavism work fostered the processes of reterritorialization and deterritorialization in the region of former Yugoslavia. The ultimate attempt that sought solutions for Yugoslav nations ended up in wars.The last armed conflicts that happened in the European continent in the 20th century were the Civil War in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Croatian Homeland War and the Kosovo War. Even though these states are now independent and internationally recognized countries, post-crisis management had little success. Recognized national borders did not prevent further divisions on local levels and microscale geopolitics. Divided regions, cities and immaterial ethnic micro-borders still burden lived realities and geopolitical visions in this region.
