The article is divided as follows: after a brief presentation of the break-up of Yugoslavia and the rise of successor nation-states, I describe complex population displacements triggered by the wars in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina as well as the controversies surrounding the two solutions to refugee crises: repatriation, which, in the form of minority return, was the focus of international actors such as UNHCR, and local integration in the country of first asylum (and also the "national homeland"), which was practised by refugees without international support.
The specific nature of the displacements and repatriations, and how they are linked to the decisions to remain in the country of first asylum, will be discussed on the following pages.
It lends support to a further argument, that settlement in the country of first asylum (and also secondary migration to the territory inhabited by co-nationals) can also be viewed as a search for sustainability and not only as ethnically motivated mobility.
We did not expect to become a significant country of first asylum since our geographic location made it unlikely that we would be the first available country of refuge for someone fleeing a regime that had been persecuting them.
Later declarations emphasized that for some refugees at high risk in the country of first asylum and where repatriation is not a possibility, resettlement can in fact provide the most adequate form of protection.
For instance, the main category of refugees admitted for resettlement in the US is comprised of those falling within certain ethnic groups and/or country of first asylum. (49) Although in consultation with other actors, the Department of State is responsible for deciding which groups are included in the annual resettlement quota, which demonstrates the highly political character of such decisions.
Each of these domains corresponds to some extent to one of the locations or sites associated with the three "durable solutions" that UNHCR is charged with pursuing for refugees: integration in the country of first asylum, resettlement in a third country, or return to the homeland.
Such transnational connections among refugee populations are attracting increasing attention from researchers.(8) As has been indicated above, schematically three domains of a refugee diaspora may be distinguished--the homeland, or place of origin; the neighbouring country or countries of first asylum, which can be characterized as the "near diaspora"; and countries of asylum further afield, perhaps in other continents, which can be termed the "wider diaspora." At least three sets of relations may emerge among these domains: between the "homeland" or territory of origin and the neighbouring country of first asylum; between the neighbouring country of first asylum and the wider diaspora; and between the "homeland" and the wider diaspora.
Resettlement can be used when refugees can neither return to their country of origin, nor be protected effectively and integrate in their country of first asylum. There are three traditional and equal goals of resettlement: protection, provision of durable solutions, and burden sharing with host countries.
These are: (1) those referred by UNHCR; (2) those falling within designated groups of ethnic origin and/or country of first asylum; and (3) family members of people already in the U.S.
A proper and justifiable mechanism needs to be worked out in the resettlement process that will ensure equitable burden sharing between UNHCR, the country of first asylum, and the resettlement country.
Resettlement--meaning the organized transfer of refugees from a country of first asylum to a third country where permanent settlement is offered--is at present available each year to fewer than 1 per cent of the world's refugees.
