The Balkan Wars in the early 1990s created a large group of Bosnian refugees that spread over Europe and outside. What has their lives been in exile? How is it different in Sweden, England and Germany, and what do the Bosnian share with other refugees, and in which way do they differ? This lecture builds on work done both with Bosnians, and with refugees with their roots in other countries.
