Journey under Surveillance

The Overseas Emigration Policy of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes in Global Context, 1918-1928

By Aleksandar R. Miletic

The government restrictions on inter-state migration, imposed as a result of the violence of World War I, had a considerable impact around the world. This book 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, as well as the 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 a chapter dedicated specifically to the issue of State-facilitated surveillance over female emigration. (Series: Studies on South East Europe - Vol. 11)
