Abstract

Following the establishment of the Serbian Progressive Party in 2008, the Serbian political scene has become characterized by a new set of dilemmas regarding democratization and Europeanization processes. By placing more emphasis on the politics of opportunities (on stronger relations with both the East and the West) and less on the politics of alternatives (on the need to select between the two geopolitical spheres), the party leadership has secured significant international attention. However, at home, the Progressivists have decided to consolidate their power, opting for an ever-increasing authoritarian approach, dominated by systemic corruption, erosion of state institutions, and continuous threat to different freedoms.
