The breakup of Yugoslavia moved nearly a million people, refugees of a republic on the territory of another over the conflict.The entry of Croatia into the European Union has changed that the people from Croatia who were refugees mainly in Serbia, are supposed to be able to return to Croatia if they wish, and thus lose their refugee status.

But the administrative procedures are particularly complex, the material conditions of their return are far from guaranteed, particularly with regard to recover their housing, the inter-ethnic tensions remain high in some areas, such as Vukovar, and the situation is even more complex for certain groups such as the Roma.
