Claiming Ownership in Postwar Croatia: The Dynamics of Property Relations and Ethnic Conflict in the Knin Region

Front Cover
LIT Verlag Münster, 2006 - History - 403 pages

The book analyzes inter-group relations in a war-torn region of postsocialist Croatia which previously had a large Serbian population. The focus is on the legitimizing discourses, structures, and agencies which regulate access to houses and land. It explores the role of ethnicity and locality in everyday life and in politics and shows that the views of Knin Croats often diverge from those of recent Croatian immigrants. The study contributes to theories of conflict and reconciliation as well as to the anthropology of postsocialism and legal anthropology.

Carolin Leutloff-Grandits is a researcher at the Department of Southeast European History at the University of Graz (Austria).
