Sažetak
The dissolution of Yugoslavia in 1991 resulted with the emergence of new national containers, new international borders in Central and Southeast Europe, pervasive politics of belonging and political exclusion of significant part of the population. The new state-building and new citizenships made the pre-war migration within the Republics of former Yugoslavia socially and politically ‘visible’ by producing new (il)legal aliens and ‘international’ migrant groups. Indiscernible and politically ‘unproblematic’ internal migration during the socialist period was politically transformed into discernible and intricate international migration. In addition, forced migration during the wars in Croatia, Bosnia and Kosovo increased the size and visibility of migrant populations within new nation-states. War related emigration also increased the size and visibility of migrant groups from Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Kosovo and Macedonia in ‘traditional’ destination countries i.e. Germany, Austria and Switzerland but also Sweden, Norway and overseas. The public and the academic community in both – Western and post-Yugoslav countries – (re)problematized migration and the issues of migrant integration in national societies ignoring migrants’ long-distance relations and specific pluri-local social arrangements. Migrant networks were completely out of focus of the mainstream social sciences in the ex-Yugoslav countries, still entrenched in research of ‘migration flows’ and ‘transition’ problems of the post-socialist societies. Due to methodological nationalism, social sciences obviously neglected the social ties and networks between migrants in countries of immigration and across former Yugoslavia in general, while a new transnational turn in migration research produced an approach which overlooks migrant social spaces across and within borders before the emergence of new nation-states. This presentation will thus try to map a neglected social phenomenon – the development of transnational social spaces of migrants across Central and Southeast Europe, using the example of migrant social ties beyond Croatian borders. We shall analyse the emergence of migrant transnational social spaces across Croatian borders and pinpoint the factors and processes which enabled their formation and expansion.
