The book deals with the historical aspects of the position of minority communities on the territory of Croatia, as well as contemporary aspects of realisation of minority rights therein.
The book especially covers the issues pertaining to national minorities’ education in their languages and/or scripts, the right to official use of language and script, as well as the minorities’ participation in decision-making processes on all levels of government. A separate section of the book is dedicated to the demographic analysis of the national minorities and to the analysis of the operation of national minorities’ organisations and institutions in the Republic of Croatia.
The book was published by the Serbian Cultural Association of “Prosvjeta”, with financial support by the National Minorities Council of the Republic of Croatia.
