The government restrictions on inter-state migration imposed as a result
of the violence of WWI had a considerable impact around the world. This
monograph explores the local Yugoslav particularities of these changes by
examining the administrative development of its emigration offices. The
book covers the official and unofficial policies, institutional and
extra-institutional frameworks, and is therefore able to address several
related topics such as the state’s hidden minority policy and the
widespread corruption and misconduct in the administration of emigration
procedures. It also includes one chapter dedicated specifically to the
issue of state-facilitated surveillance over female emigration.

Aleksandar R. Mileti’c is currently a fellow at the Imre Kertész Kolleg in
Jena where he is working on an exhaustive study on interrelations between
state, society and economy in interwar Southeast and East-Central Europe.
