Sažetak
The borders and borderlands of the geographical space that, pre-1991, constituted ‘ Yugoslavia’ have in recent years clearly been transformed. Where internal limits existed, international boundaries (re)emerged. The functions of these boundaries have also, inevitably, changed radically and this has had fundamental implications for the borderland communities in question – the compositions of which have also frequently been substantially altered. Eastern Slavonia, on the Croatia-Yugoslavia interface, emerged as a distinct politico-geographical entity following the break-up of the former Yugoslav federal state. In 1991 the region formed the front line in the armed conflict between Croatian and Serbian/Yugoslav forces and as a result experienced considerable material destruction and human suffering. Between 1991 and 1995, the region was subject to international intervention in the form of a United Nations peacekeeping force which served to maintain the status quo and was seen, depending on the viewer’ s perspective, as either occupied territory of the Republic of Croatia (the Croatian viewpoint), United Nations Sector East (the stance of the international community in general), or part of the Serbian Republic of Krajina (the Serbian perspective). In late 1995, in parallel with the Dayton peace negotiations relating to Bosnia-Herzegovina, agreement was reached on the reintegration of the region into Croatia. As a result, a two-year process was undertaken by the parties to the conflict which formally reached its conclusion in early 1998. During this period, Eastern Slavonia was governed by a United Nations Transitional Authority (UNTAES). Although the UN has now relinquished its authority in Eastern Slavonia and the region is internationally recognised as an integral part of the Republic of Croatia, the consequences of the conflict are still significant and painful. The process of reintegration is an ongoing one with post-war reconstruction, the return of refugees and displaced persons and reconciliation between the Croat, Serbian and Hungarian communities the focal issues in the normalisation of everyday life. This Briefing offers a historical overview of the evolution of the Croatia-Serbia boundary, details events in Eastern Slavonia between 1991 and the present and provides an assessment of the success of United Nations efforts to defuse ethnic and nationalist tensions and bring about dispute resolution through the peaceful reintegration of Eastern Slavonia into Croatia. Events in the region in the aftermath of the UN’ s withdrawal will also be subject to scrutiny with a view to identifying remaining points of dispute, exploring the prospects for the region and analysing whether and how new borderland regional identities are being forged in Eastern Slavonia.
