Description :
The paper tries to outline the changes in the ethnic-religious spatial structure of South Eastern Europe based on the census data of 1921 and 2001/2002. During the 20th century important changes took place in the ethnic-religious structure as a result of the forced (mostly war-time) migrations during the periods 1944-48 and 1991-99. According to the latest census data, the ratio of the dominant nations of the states increased to 87%, parallel with a decreasing share of the minorities. This process is a result of the war-time ethnic cleansings, large-scale migrations and assimilations. They show a tendancy towards ethnic-religious homogenisation - at the expense of the minorities. - (IfL)
