Kosovo's Refugees in the European Union
Joanne van Selm
A&C Black, Sep 13, 2000 - Political Science - 239 pages
As more than one million displaced Kosovars crossed borders into Albania and other former Yugoslav republics of Macedonia and Montenegro, the E.U. member states reacted with confusion and lack of unity.While political attention focused on the bombing campaign, public attention - stimulated by media images - was focused on the misery and suffering of fellow Europeans. The book describes and analyzes the vacillations of seven E.U. member states (Germany, Netherlands, U.K., Sweden, Austria, Italy and France) concerning the management of this European refugee crisis.
