Non-Territorial Autonomy in Croatia

Non-Territorial Autonomy in Croatia

Managing Diversity through Non-Territorial Autonomy

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores mechanisms of realization of national minority cultural autonomy in Croatia that do not bear the traits of a conventional non-territorial autonomy. The competences for realization of cultural autonomy in this country are principally split between the Council for National Minorities, national minority associations, and national minority councils. In the first part the chapter therefore analyses means of cultural autonomy realization through financing projects of national minority associations that promote minority cultural autonomy. The chapter subsequently analyses the background of the establishment, competences, and achievement of the national minority councils, directly elected consultative bodies that will allow for more efficient participation of national minorities at the local and regional levels in Croatia, arguing that their role in the realization of national cultural autonomy, due to unclear mandate and limited competences, is quite marginal.

Keywords:   Croatia, non-territorial autonomy, cultural autonomy, national minority councils, competences
