The paper considers regional and ethnic problems in socialist Yugoslavia during the period 1945-1991. After the World War II Yugoslavia was renewed, but according to previous experience not as an unitary, centrally organized state, but as the federal state of six republics (with two autonomous provinces in one of them). In the development of the new state regional goals and regional policy were constantly one of the most important purposes, but they were considered as the inter-national problem, so they were little different from these problems in the first Yugoslavia. To them contributed also the status of republics (and autonomous provinces) as macro-regions and reductions of the regional policy to the collection and distribution of the additional assets for the development of the underdeveloped. In mid 1960’s, when the spatial coordinate system of regional development was replaced with the spatial non-coordinate system, regional problems multiplied, and the country and its parts suffered losses. It was the regional, i.e. ethnic problem the one that got overly serious and lead to the destruction of the country.

Keywords: Regional problem, Yugoslavia, republics, nations, regional policy, aid for the underdeveloped regions
