The Rise and Fall of Yugoslavia

03 Jul

Yugoslavia–as it was from 1929-1991

The seperate republics that constituted Yugoslavia–the provinces of Kosovo and Vojvodina were given autonomy in 1974 by Tito.

Slovenia declared independence in 1991, followed by Macedonia and Croatia. Bosnia was soon to follow–but as Bosnia and Croatia possessed large Serb enclaves, war broke out in 1992. The Dayton Accords brokered a peace deal and Bosnia was divided into the Republika Srpska and the Muslim-Croat Federation.

Yugoslavia was wiped off the face of the map and replaced with the loose union of Serbia and Montenegro. Montenegro voted for independence in 2006. Kosovo has been an autonomous province of Serbia since 1974 (except for the period after 1989 when Milosevic revoked its autonomy). On 17 February 2008 Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia.
