Balkan obsession with Separatism

In this edition of Balkan Obsessions, in our quest of understanding the obsession with separatism, we will first tackle two isolated cases that perfectly showcase the troubles that appeared during the process of consolidating national borders in a region of unfinished ethnogenesis and unclear notions of nationality at that point in time.
We shall do this by firstly examining the relationship between separatism and irredentism on the example of Albanian statehood in a post-Ottoman world.
Then, by using this spatial context and understanding of the causes of reactionary separatism, we will attempt to extract the essence from the fuming separatist movements in the region of Ex-Yugoslavia, including Reublika Srpska, Herceg-Bosna and Sandžak, and how exactly hitherto unsolved national questions inevitably lead to tragic instances of ethnic cleansing.
