Summary This paper discusses how international intervention to consolidate new democracies of post-conflict Bosnia and Kosovo interacts with the heritage of Islamic culture in both states. Within a study of specific examples in the context of civil-military relations, it is argued that the approach of authoritarian state-building, which establishes a democratic political culture by imposing international structures and standards, is posited on dismissing local capacities as unreliable, and undemocratic. The valorising of (Edemocracy1, (Epeace1, (Ejustice1 and economic prosperity, creates a (Ecivilisational slope1 that has potentially conflictual implications for Islam, political stability and a future for democracy in the region.
