In this study we explored how the incomplete demarcation process influences local communities and what their priorities are concerning this issue.
It has been five years since Serbia and Montenegro became separate countries. The process of demarcating the border between two countries started in 2008 when a commission for delimitation was created. The negotiations halted when Montenegro recognized Kosovo’s independence, because Serbia did not want to take part in negotiations about borders if Kosovo was not included in the process as part of Serbia. Negotiations resumed in March 2011, but there is still a long way to go in order to reach an agreement on state borders.
People living in the border areas have still not got used to crossing the border at border crossings and still have difficulties getting used to procedures for selling goods from Serbia in Montenegro. Other problems they face are related to underdevelopment and migration.
BCSP will soon address authorities in Serbia and Montenegro with a list of recommendations to improve this situation.
