First reactions to the report of the Balkan Commission

Following a report by the International Commission on the Balkans (photo) entitled "The Balkans in Europe's Future", the British daily "The Guardian" published two articles commenting on it. Timothy Garton Ash asks for a "Pax Europeana" and Ian Traynor sees "Europe attacked over Balkans failure". Both articles and other selected reading on Statebuilding can also be found in our reactions-section.
