A Legal Geography of Yugoslavia's Disintegration

Oxford University Press

The legal aspects of the Yugoslav wars center around one key question: Can internal administrative boundaries serve as a legal basis for secession? This chapter analyzes the territorial division of Yugoslavia since its creation in 1918 in order to define the notion of administrative boundaries. The relevant pre-1918 historical context relating to administrative division will also be provided to shed further light on the legal and political consequences of this division.

Keywords:   secession, territorial division, Serbia, Croatia, Slovenia, national movements, Bosnia and Herzegovina
