With the decline of the People's Republic of Yugoslavia and the demise of the socialist economic systems, extensive informal building activities constituting a novel form of urbanization began in the western Balkans. The resulting architectural and urban structures are characterized by trans-local influences and are accepted by large sections of society there. They are an expression of development patterns that provide pointers to future forms of urban living in Europe.
