The exerted interdisciplinary basic research should give proper answers for these two main subjects. This reasearch should reflect on possible backgrounds and sources of the peripherisation of the multi-ethnic state, which are assumed to be found in the dependence from the capitalistic centres of power. Therefore, the "modern world system theory" of Immanuel Wallerstein and the conception of the "failed state" should be used as the main explanation approach for the collapse of the state of Yugoslavia.
