Summary/Abstract: Author dicsucsses Succession Agreement signed in Wiena on 29 june 2001 by five sovereign and equal successor states of former SFRY: Bosnia and Herzegovina; Republic of Croatia, Republic of Macedonia, Republic of Slovenia and Federal Republic of Serbia. The Agreement aims to determine equitable and even-handed distribution of rights and responsibilities and assets and liabilities of former common state - SFRY. Having analysed provisions of the Agreement and their application, the author concludes that there are inconsistencies in application by certain successor states. Furthermore, some serious disparities between the elements of the Agreement have been noted. For example, Annex B to the Agreement was unjustifiably hastily implemented, whereas Annexes E and G remained virtually unimplemented – all of this to the detriment of the citizens of Republic of Serbia and refugees in Republic of Srebia. Without sinchronisation in the application of the Agreement on Succession as a whole, this unfavourable trend would continue.
