SERBIAN IDENTITY AND MONTENEGRISM – CURRENT RELATIONS OF POWER
The national identity of the Serbs and Montenegrism are two parallel and exclusive phenomena. Th e representatives of the Montenegrin national identity deny their Serbian ethnic origin, with the help of the „Civil concept of the Montenegrin nation“ assimilate national Serbs in Montenegro. Th ese assimilation processes of Serbs permanently destabilize montenegrin society and undermine stability in the Western Balkans region. Th e exit strategy would represent, for the beginning: a consociational model for the organization of Montenegro, as a society of multiethnic and inter-religious communities, based on equal principles that would take place in parallel with the processes of regional integration in the Western Balkans region.
