For example, the informal agreement between Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski and the leader of the largest Albanian party Ali Ahmeti in May 2011, prevented a coalition break-up and the fall of the government. Similarly, the so-called Prud Process in Bosnia in 2008 saw leaders of the main political parties gather and informally discuss the most sensitive political issues facing the country. Therefore, by looking into those unofficial channels that create, communicate and enforce rules and routines, this book develops a more inclusive and nuanced explanation of the factors behind ethnic accommodation.

In particular, most attention is paid to the roles played by high-ranking EU and NATO officials and in Bosnia by the High Representative. Both countries’ ambitions to join the EU and NATO gave those actors a significant say in domestic politics, including the most sensitive issues related to inter-ethnic relations. 45 Barbara F.
