From Disintegration to European Integration: Nationality & Citizenship in the Former Yugoslavia

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

In this article the author examines the multiple changes in the nationality and citizenship status of the former citizens of Yugoslavia in three distinct phases between 1991 and 2006. After Yugoslavia's break-up, almost all successor states used their citizenship laws as an effective tool of nation-building and ethnic engineering. The recent democratization of the region under EU influence resulted also in significant improvements in the nationality and citizenship legislations and administrative practices. Nevertheless, this trend depends largely on the further process of EU enlargement and eventual accession of the ex-Yugoslav states.
