The Disintegration of Yugoslavia (1989-2001)


  • Fati Iseni


The fragile state so-called "Yugoslavia" had already begun to decay from within itself during the past decade because of many factors, but mostly from ethnic conflicts. Among other nations who were not satisfied with its constitutional order and the Serbian chauvinist aggression were Slovenes, Croats and Albanians. Unlike the others, Albanians were the only ones who dared to challenge the very strong political and military system of the federation that was built with decades. The reasons were numerous. Already for many years Serbian and Yugoslav governments under the umbrella of Milosevic were perpetrators of continued violence over the entire Albanian population in Yugoslavia. The Albanian question in Yugoslavia despite Milosevic’s government attempts to remain as an internal issue of Yugoslavia (or Serbia and Macedonia), it was still found very soon in the round tables of the major world powers who would later be the most powerful advocates of Albanians in their pathway for their freedom and independence.
