Bora Radovic: Yugoslav Wars 1991-1999 and some of their social consequences

Radović’s work is the first part of the Monograph “Torture in War, Consequences and Rehabilitation: Yugoslav Experience” and gives a brief overview of the political context of the last stage of the breakup of Yugoslavia. The specifics of Yugoslav wars are described: ethnic cleansing, improvised camps and detention sites, as well as the significant role of paramilitary formations. The work is significant, among other things, because of the author’s attempt to make a list of camps throughout the territory of the former Yugoslavia and a general victim assessment on all battlefields.
