Summary/Abstract: The study aims to analyse the controversial and so far, not sufficiently explored circumstances which preceded the re-integration of Sarajevo after the end of the Bosnian conflict at the beginning of 1996 and its specific consequences (especially the flight of Bosnian Serbs from Sarajevo). The facts on the ground that caused the majority of Serbs to leave their homes have still not been thoroughly analysed and in many cases remain unclear. Empirical evidence has been gathered from extensive field research based upon the qualitative interviewing project (in 2016 and 2017) and written texts of the fragmented media scene in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The main focus of the paper is to analyse the internal and external causes that initiated and influenced the flight of Serbs from Sarajevo.
