Summary/Abstract: In this paper the author analyzes constitutional and legal positions of Serbs in the states founded in the aftermath of the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia – the republic of Slovenia, the Republic of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Republic of Montenegro and the Republic of Macedonia. He also points out the number of Serbs in the post-Yugoslav states, at the same time comparing data from the 1991 Census and censuses taken in recent years (2001-2003). This analysis particularly emphasizes the current situation, that is, the position of Serbs in the aforementioned states. Serbs living in ex-Yugoslav states are not recognized as a minority (the Republics of Slovenia and Montenegro) or are being gradually integrated and assimilated (the Republics of Croatia and Macedonia). The position of Serbs, as the author points out, is different in many aspects in Bosnia and Herzegovina due to the principle of their full constitutionality, that is, their being equal with Bosnians and Croats.
