This introductory chapter begins with a discussion of the emergence of the term “ethnic cleansing” with the outbreak of the Bosnian war of 1992–5, and how ethnic cleansing is a form of geopolitics. It considers the provisions and implementation of Annex 7 of the General Framework Agreement. It then sets out the rationale for this book—the contention that both ethnic cleansing and return are unavoidably geographical processes—and identifies five important objects of analysis in the study of ethnic cleansing and returns in Bosnia. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords: Bosnian war; ethnic cleansing; geopolitics; General Framework Agreement; Annex 7
