In Next Steps in Croatia’s Transition Process: Problems and Possibilities, leading policy-oriented scholars and practitioners from Zagreb and Split draw on years of experience to critically assess the transition process in post-independence Croatia. Wide-ranging contributions analyse how the interpretation of national sovereignty has evolved in this post-communist transition, investigate the prospects for civil-social engagement in a future without civil society, and discuss the pervasive effects of external assistance as well as the considerable challenges Croatia’s economy faces – above all the need for changes in the mindset of entrepreneurs and society in general. Arguing for a more nuanced understanding of Croatia, and exploring at the same time the crucial role « ownership » plays in the success of these initiatives, the book provides insight into problems now emerging in the nation’s current stage of development.
