In the text the author analyses the quality and scope of social
interaction between Croats and Serbs after the war and the
return/settlement of war migrants in former areas of conflict.
In the pre-war period the network of primary social relations
in the micro-social ambience of local communities consisted
of neighbourhood, marital and generational ties, friendship
and other socio-interactive patterns of members of different
ethnic groups. Croats and Serbs participated significantly in
these networks, while a majority of members of both groups
had friends in the other ethnic group. The research shows
that friends ended their contacts or simply parted, but there
were also many cases when both Croatian and Serbian
friends protected each other during the war. What is
indicative is that in addition to mutual protection, friends did
not more significantly take part in threats and physical
attacks against friends of other nationalities. This made their
meeting after the war easier, so they mostly cautiously or
unreservedly renewed their communication, which can be
regarded in the post-war situation as social capital for
regenerating networks of primary social ties in a local
ambience. The answers of the respondents in these cases as
well indicate a relatively tolerant atmosphere, at least in the
field of attitudes, which will certainly in part have a positive
influence on post-war processes, one of the more important
goals of which is the integration of all actors from the former
war areas into the social habitus of local communities.
