Abstract

The extensive Yugoslav economic migration and presence of Yugoslav ethnic minorities in Western Europe, as well as the interaction of this migration with the Yugoslav crisis of the 1980s, remain under-researched. This article sets out to offer a modest contribution on this neglected topic. It argues that short-distance transnational communities and short-term migration were already at the centre of grievances articulated on ethno-nationalist grounds in the early 1980s. It links these grievances to the different impact of the two oil shocks and the process of European integration on each Yugoslav republic, differences which contributed to the crisis of federal unity.
