Otcepljenje putem oružane sile: komparativna studija Čečenije i Kosova

Abstract

The paper deals with deficiencies of structural explanation of the use of force during attempts at secession. Comparative analysis of the cases of Kosovo and Chechnya has demonstrated that these two secessionist movements differed in their stances toward the use of armed forces prior the secessionist attempts even though comparable structural conditions for the use of armed forces existed in these cases. Alongside of structural factors, the author considers human factor as performing an important role in selection of tactics of armed rebellion. This thesis has been corroborated by the roles of the secessionist leaders Dzhokhar Dudaev in Chechnya and Ibrahim Rugova in Kosovo. Different biographies, education and personal characteristics of the leaders have contributed to diverse political tactics and preferences in terms of the use of armed forces.
