I can't say too much about the trajectory of the Praxis
philosophers since I haven't followed their careers very
closely in recent years.  It was my understanding that
the Praxis group had pretty much disintegrated with
the breakup of Yugoslavia, and the article pretty much
confirms that.

I haven't looked at the article in a while but I seem
to remember it as being strongly anti-Serb in tone.
Also, it seemed to rely rather heavily on the views
of the former American editor of Praxis International,
Selya Benhabib, who teaches political philosophy at
Harvard.  (I might be a little biased in this regard
since back years ago when Benhabib was teaching
at Boston University, a cousin of mine took one of
her political philosophy classes and had a slight
run-in with her, so that may color my views of her).
