This research utilizes the United Nations Database for Refugees in order to establish the three countries that assisted Yugoslavia by taking in the highest number of refugees. Germany, the United States, and Sweden were three countries explored in more detail regarding refugee assistance. This research draws conclusions based on historical context, refugee resettlement policy from the United Nations, and country-specific immigration and refugee policies. Germany, the United States, and Sweden each have a unique connection to Yugoslavia both before and during the Yugoslav Wars. The wars took place from 1991 – 1995 when over half of the Yugoslav population was displaced either outside Yugoslavia or within the Yugoslav borders. Yugoslavia is comprised of modern day Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo, and the province of Vojvodina. This study describes the history of Yugoslavia as it led to the Yugoslav Wars and the displacement of refugees from Yugoslavia.
