General Human Development Report Serbia 1996


The Report describes the inherited structures and policies from the former Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia, which it argues are proclaimed, but not factually compatible with the goals of human development, but whose mechanisms and financing requirements proved to make them unsustainable.
It discusses the major damage caused to the economy by the period of civil war, and the vast cost in terms of the fall in GDP, unemployment, loss of incomes, housing, and general trauma for the population. With the return of peace, good possibilities exist to build on the positive growth rates of the last two years.
