It is a common place to say that Serbia's political leadership failed to
understand the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. It is only by political
changes of the 5th October 2000, which we here describe as “liberal
revolution” – relying on the normative construct developed by Bruce
Ackerman – that a “constitutional chance” for re-defining of political
identity of Serbia emerged. However, the 2012 elections marked the
returning of the actors of the “Old Regime” on political scene, which
meant also the beginning of the period of “political restauration”.
Serbia had a misfortune: in the last 50 years it gave birth to two most
regressive regimes in contemporary Europe. It is the only post-communist
country in which we now witness political restauration. In
this article we analyse political dynamics of Serbian society, beginning
with forceful processes of “republicanisation of politics” and
ending with destruction of political body of society, the fall of democracy
and the emergence of a particular form of political pathology.
