The Balkans: The Language Issue

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Bosnia Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia, Arts & Culture, Ethnicity & Race, Governance, History, International Relations, Language, Politics, War & Conflict

Balkan Baby writes [1] about the “language issue” in the Balkans: “What language do we speak when we are in the countries that once made up Yugoslavia? In Slovenia and Macedonia the answer is quite simple since these two countries both had their own languages which were recognised by the Yugoslav Government. For Bosnia, Croatia, Montenegro and Serbia the answer is maybe not quite so clear.”
