After the collapse of Yugoslavia in the early 1990s, Bosnia declared independence. The fighting between Bosnian Muslims and Bosnian Serbs was bitter and let to the siege of Sarejevo and the massacre at Srebrenica. The Serbs followed a policy of ethnic cleansing to try and get rid of the Muslims. NATO airstrikes against the Serbs in 1995 led to a peace treaty which split Bosnia into Muslim and Serb areas.

Kosovo in Conflict

KS3 & 4 Post-1945 Conflicts
Kosovo has been disputed over by Serbs and Albanians. In 1974, Kosovo became the seventh federal state of Yugoslavia whilst still remaining part of Serbia. The Kosovan conflict began in 1990 when Serbia imposed direct rule. Passive resistance from Kosovan Albanians turned into active violence. A peace conference in 1999 failed and soon afterward NATO air strikes took place. Eventually this led to Serb withdrawal and the return of refugees. 4000 refugees were resettled in Britain.
