Bosnia and Herzegovina: Sectarian divide continues to hamper residual return and reintegration of the displaced

Further to a re-registration exercise completed by the authorities in 2005, the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) dropped from 309,000 at the end of 2004 to 187,000 in Spring 2005.

Further to a re-registration exercise completed by the authorities in 2005, the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) dropped from 309,000 at the end of 2004 to 187,000 in Spring 2005. This decrease can be explained by the number of returns which had taken place since the previous registration in 2000 and by the fact that many displaced have decided to integrate locally.

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.

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.
