Several months ago the main topic in Serbia was the Feasibility Study. Everyone was talking about it, mostly completely unaware and uninformed about the nature, form and use of it. Nevertheless, the outcome was important: would it be positive or not? The Feasibility Study was some kind of Hamlet’s dilemma for the country: “To be, or not to be?” At least, one ICTY indictee went to The Hague every week. The Government crossed the Rubicon. Public attention was absolute and, finally, on 12 April 2005, Serbia and Montenegro got a positive assessment on its preparedness to negotiate a Stabilization and Association Agreement (SAA) with the European Union (EU).
