Following NATO bombings on the 24th of
March 1999, Serbian armed forces provoked a massive
population exodus of ethnic
Albanians living in Kosovo, an
autonomous province of Federal Republic
of Yugoslavia. In June 1999, UNHCR
reparted that 600,000 Kosovars had found
refuge in neighbouring countries. ln order
to assess the situation of Kosovar refugees,
two surveys were carried out in Rozaje,
Republic of Montenegro, and in Kukes,
Albania, in April 1999. The main goal was
to assess human rights violations. This
paper describes the results of these surveys.
