 Croatia - Part 4

I liked the photos in a report on Serb returnees to Croatia (pdf) published in the OSCE Magazine from December 2006. They were taken by the freelance photographer Ivor Prickett who did several reports on the Balkans: on his webpage you can find a photo report on a family of Roma IDPs in Kosovo ("Kablare: Poisened Earth").

As a P.S. to the last Croatia posting I wanted to introduce the website of Emanuel Galic on the EU accession process in Croatia and Croatian minority policy. Here is the abstract of his MA-thesis, in German and Croatian, as well as some information on the situation of minorities in Croatia (German).

Croatia - whose institutions in the field of civil society, police and media have made considerable progress according to the OSCE Mission to Croatia - has concluded the first chapter of EU negotiations (on science and resarch) and will now start the political talks.

"It is Dangerous to Tackle Taboos in Croatia" writes Vesna Peric Zimonjic on the website of the Inter Press Service. She refers to the threats received by journalists of the Croatian state TV HRT after an episode of the popular talk show "Latinica" on 12 December 2005, "The Legacy of Tudjman", in which the commentators criticised the policy of the first Croatian President Franjo Tudjman (1991- 1999), founder of the HDZ and leader of Croatia's secession from the SFRY. The show tackled "taboos" like war crimes committed by Croats in the region of Zadar and in Osijek, Gotovina's arrest, discrimination of Serbs in Croatia. Denis Latin, in charge of the "Latinica" show, received more than 200 telephone threats and was put under special police protection. Meanwhile, HDZ asked for a change of the editorial board of HRT, and HRT is considering sacking D. Latin (cf. article by D. Hedl in the Osservatorio sui Balkani, 20.12.2005, in Italian or French).
