Everyday legitimacy in post-conflict spaces : the creation of social legitimacy in Bosnia-Herzegovina's cultural arenas.

Kappler, Stefanie (2013) 'Everyday legitimacy in post-conflict spaces : the creation of social legitimacy in Bosnia-Herzegovina's cultural arenas.', Journal of intervention and statebuilding., 7 (1). pp. 11-28.

Abstract

The international community has long been criticized for its lack of social legitimacy in Bosnia-Herzegovina and its creation of a dysfunctional public space in the light of people's everyday experiences of peace. This article contends that, as a result, legitimacy has been moved from such public spaces to semi-public spaces, wherein the public and the private are interrelated. One example is local cultural arenas, where hopes emerging in people's everyday lives are projected onto alternative visions of peace and a corresponding social contract. In that sense, cultural agencies have served as alternative social locations of legitimacy due to their closer connection to people's lives and needs.
