Croatia: Housing rights and employment still preventing durable solutions

The number of internally displaced people (IDPs) in Croatia has fallen significantly since the armed conflict between the Croat majority and the Serb minority ended in 1995. At the end of the war, around 250,000 people were displaced within Croatia, of whom 32,000 were Croatian Serbs. By June 2009, the number of IDPs had fallen to about 2,400, including over 1,600 ethnic Serbs.

Croatia: Reforms come too late for most remaining ethnic Serb IDPs

The number of internally displaced people (IDPs) in Croatia has fallen significantly since the armed hostilities between the Croat majority and the Serb minority ended in 1995. By December 2005, the total was considered to be between 5,000 and 7,000 including 1,700 ethnic Serbs. These figures disguise a huge disparity in return patterns between ethnic Serbs and Croats. While 99 per cent of the over 220,000 ethnic Croats displaced by the conflict have returned, little more than one-third of the over 300,000 ethnic Serb IDPs and refugees have been able to do so. In addition, about two-third of past returns are not sustainable, according to spot-checks and estimates by international organisations and NGOs.

Profile of Internal Displacement: Croatia

The official number of internally displaced people (IDPs) in Croatia has fallen significantly since the armed hostilities between the Croat majority and the Serb minority ended in 1995. In April 2004, the government reported that 11,493 people remained in a situation of internal displacement, including 9,791 ethnic Croats and 1,702 ethnic Serbs. These figures disguise a huge disparity in return patterns between ethnic Serbs and Croats. While most of the 220,000 ethnic Croats displaced by the conflict have returned, only one third of the over 300,000 ethnic Serb IDPs and refugees have been able to do so.
