“NO PLACE LIKE HOME”: The return of displaced Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian families to Kosovo

16 June 2014 - Thousands of people from the Roma, Ashkali and Egyptian communities fled Kosovo during the conflict in 1999, and sought refuge in neighboring countries. Fifteen years later, some 8,000 people are still displaced in Montenegro and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The vast majority are willing to integrate into their new societies. But around 200 families want to return to Kosovo. These families are extremely vulnerable. And their living conditions can be dire. In response, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is working to find durable solutions – so that anyone who wants to return home to Kosovo has the chance to do so.
