Serbian diaspora

Geographical distribution of Serbian diaspora

Serbian diaspora refers to the Serbian communities that have formed outside Serbia and autochthonous areas of Western Balkans. Existence of a numerous Serbian diaspora are mainly consequences of either economic or political (coercion or expulsions) reasons.

There are over 2 million Serbs in diaspora throughout the world, although some sources put that figure as high as 4 million.[1] Large communities are found in German-speaking countries (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) amounting in total to more than 1.2 million.

  21. ^ "So, just how many Serbs live in Britain? Britić figures defy census figures of 2001.". Ebritic.com. June 3, 2011. There have been various attempts to estimate the population of Serbs living in the UK. The simplest answer was the 2001 national census which stated that there are 31,244 UK residents born in Serbian and Montenegro. A further 6,992 were born in Croatia. However, the obvious problems are that many Serbs were born in the UK (maybe even most British Serbs). Moreover, in 2001 there were still a large number of Kosovan Albanians in Britain who of course would have been registered as being born in Serbia and Montenegro.
