Yugoslavia: Veterans' Association
Country Study > Chapter 4 > Government and Politics > Nongovernmental Political Institutions > Veterans' Association


The Federation of Associations of Veterans of the National Liberation War (Savez udruzenja boraca Narodno-oslobodilackog rata -- SUBNOR) was an aging, dwindling group of former World War II partisans. The assemblies of local and republic governments designated seats for SUBNOR representatives. Often used by Tito as a prestigious lever for centralizing party control, SUBNOR in the 1980s espoused the view that modern Yugoslavia had degenerated since the early days of struggle, and that new leadership was needed. Although by 1990 few figures of its generation and viewpoint remained in national politics, SUBNOR retained considerable influence in the first post-Tito decade
