Briefing notes

Refugees from Bosnia and Herzegovina

11 May 1999

Yesterday UNHCR sent to governments a detailed position paper on categories of refugees remaining from the conflict in Bosnia and Herzegovina who are still in need of international protection. The main categories of Bosnian refugees whom UNHCR considers still to be in need of protection are persons originating from areas where they would no longer belong to the majority ethnic group on return, ex-detainees and persons who were victims of violence and serious trauma, and persons of mixed ethnicity or living in mixed marriages.
