Chapter Summary

Yugoslavia at the time Professor Bakotić came to Canada four decades ago remained something of an enigma politically. The Western Allies had made a crucial decision, by the beginning of 1944, to shift their military-logistical support, among the rival organised partisan groups fighting the German military occupation forces in Yugoslavia, to Titos Communist forces, on the basis of assessment of their efficacy in conducting military resistance operations within Yugoslavia itself. For Canadian government purposes, the Yugoslav succession problem, in its early years at least, was considered as a European issue, to be worked out within the appropriate Regional authority, the European Community; and, if the internal situation should become pathological in international terms because of the impact of internal, national events on other, neighbouring states or regions and the World Community at large, then through the United Nations organisation.
