Summary/Abstract: One of the guiding questions in this text is how xenophobia becomes a political fact. When xenophobia, as a phenomenon, wants to be concrete and related to the present state of society and matters of politics thatare dominant in these areas, then we can see that it is an expression of that exact political opinion and act. The project of creating homogeneous national states sets off many mechanisms, andinduces new rhetoric, values and rules; this proves evident in the case of the dissolution of ex-Yugoslavia. Xenophobic politics forges the world; it changes perceptions of reality, and the image of the world that is given is a reduced one.
