Abstract
U radu se daje presjek najvažnijih događaja i čimbenika koji su pridonijeli raspadu socijalističke Jugoslavije. Nakon Titove smrti stabilnu su vladavinu zamijenila previranja potaknuta ekonomskom i političkom krizom. Stanje se dodatno pogoršalo dolaskom Slobodana Miloševića na vlast u Srbiji. Nakon izvršene antibirokratske revolucije te postavljanja bliskih suradnika na vodeća mjesta u pokrajinama, Milošević pokušava centralizirati čitavu Jugoslaviju u kojoj će dominaciju imati upravo srpsko rukovodstvo. Tim činom došao je u sukob s ostalim republikama koje su težile većoj ili potpunoj samostalnosti. Nakon demokratskih procesa u Sloveniji i Hrvatskoj, JNA se sve više priklanja srpskomu rukovodstvu te oduzima oružje Teritorijalne obrane. Stanje je postalo ozbiljnije pobunom Srba u Hrvatskoj koji nedugo nakon demokratskih promjena proglašavaju vlastitu državu pod patronatom Srbije. Uskoro su uslijedili sve veći incidenti što je konačno rezultiralo oružanim sukobom. Najprije se dogodio napad JNA na Sloveniju koji je trajao 10 dana, a zatim se sukob prelio u Hrvatsku gdje je trajao znatno duže i prouzročio mnoge žrtve i teška razaranja. Zatišje na bojišnici nastupa potpisivanjem Sarajevskog primirja 2. siječnja 1992. te prihvaćanjem Vance-Owenova mirovnog plana o demilitarizaciji okupiranih područja. Konačni krah države na izdisaju dogodio se međunarodnim priznanjem Slovenije i Hrvatske, a poslije i drugih republika.

Parallel abstract (English)
The thesis provides an overview of the most important events and factors which contributed to the breakup of the Socialist Yugoslavia. After Tito's death, economic and political crisis gave rise to turmoil which replaced a stabile rule. The situation was further exacerbated when Slobodan Milošević assumed leadership in Serbia. Upon carrying out an anti-bureaucratic revolution, and appointing close associates to leading regional positions, Milošević tried to centralize the entire Yugoslavia, in which Serbian leadership would become dominant. By doing so, he entered into conflict with other republics which aspired to greater or total autonomy. After democratic processes took place in Slovenia and Croatia, the JNA (Yugoslav People's Army) increasingly sided with Serbian leadership and disarmed the Territorial Defence. The situation became more serious with insurrection of Serbs in Croatia where they, following democratic changes, proclaimed their own state under Serbian patronage. Soon, more major incidents ensued, which finally led to an armed conflict. Firstly, the JNA initialized an attack on Slovenia which lasted for 10 days, and afterwards, the conflict spread to Croatia where it lasted significantly longer and caused many casualties and substantial destruction. A ceasefire at the battlefield entered into force with the signing of Sarajevo peace accord on 2 January 1992, and accepting the Vance-Owen Plan on demilitarization of occupied territories. The final downfall of a dying state ensued after international recognition of Slovenia and Croatia, as well as the other republics after that.
