In this talk, CSEES researchers Rory Archer and Mladen Zobec present the research project “To the Northwest! Intra Yugoslav Albanian migration (1953-1989)” funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) which began earlier this year. The research examines the phenomenon of Yugoslav Albanian migration from the Yugoslav south (Kosovo, Macedonia) to the Northern republics of Slovenia and Croatia. The project engages with recent scholarly innovations in Southeast European studies of race, ethnicity, class, gender and the intersection of such categories. We hypothesize that the experience of migration for Albanians was shaped by a range of factors including occupation, class position, gender, family structure, place of origin, religion, and political orientation.
