Remember The Month of September – For Croatia!

  While Australian Croatians eagerly await in September the visit from Croatia of several outstanding people in the long-drawn and painful battles for free and democratic Croatia it is to be noted, with profound sadness but also with pride for the courage of Croatian people, that the month of September is marked by fierce battles […]

Croatian Diaspora – The Magic Bullet

Beyond chanting mantras and slogans on the political platform in Croatia, the devil seems to lie in the details. How does the Croatian diaspora engagement take place and in what form? Or is there real engagement at all? A few days ago I attended a Croatian Diaspora Conference in the city of Osijek, third one […]

Croatian Motherland: Matija Pavkovic from Canada

  First published by Croatiaweek.com Matija (23) was born in Mississauga, lived in the United States for a brief period of time when he was young, and then moved back to Canada. In August of 2017, he moved to Croatia. Where in Croatia do your roots lie? My father is from a village close to […]

Croatian Diaspora On Agenda – Most Parliamentarians Busy Bunking

Imagine this: it’s Friday 20 October 2017, a very important government office report is about to be read and tabled in parliament. Your eyes circle attentively around the chamber, apart from the State Secretary for Croats living abroad and his assistant, the government front bench is empty – all the ministers and Prime Minister probably […]

Croatia: Lustration To Stop Sinking Deeper Into Mediocrity

  I have lost count of the number of times General Zeljko Glasnovic, Member of Croatian Parliament for the Diaspora, has emphasised and warned in his public and parliamentary appearances that the Croatian diaspora is purposefully excluded from Croatian social, economic and political life and development…and that this must be rectified in order for Croatia […]

Breaking Bread With The Diaspora

It has come to my attention that the Office of the President of Croatia is on 21 July organising “Open Doors Day for Croatian Diaspora and Croatian Minority Communities Abroad”. One does, however, from the perspective of Croatia itself, wonder why “Croatian ethnic minorities abroad” are separated in this event’s title from the concept of […]

State Of The Croatian Nation – Observations

  Taking into consideration the seemingly prevalent mood, the problems that revolved around me during the last three weeks while I was visiting Croatia in March point to an alarming and concerning situation from which one can conclude that Croatia is revolving in a destructive circle whose orbit needs to be thwarted as soon as […]

Interview With Zvonko Milas – Government Office For Croats Outside The Republic Of Croatia

    According to the assessment of many in the diaspora the Government Office for Croats outside the Republic of Croatia, which you have been leading for several months now as State Secretary, has not proven very effective under the former Social Democrat led government. Indeed, it has remained a certain enigma when it comes […]

Quick – Croats Living Abroad Get Your Submission In For Government Grants

  Once again, I’m peeved off  at the Central Government Office For Croats Outside the Republic of Croatia as well as with the Croatian consular/diplomatic services around the world for failing miserably at properly informing those they are paid to serve (all the Croats living abroad) of important opportunities to be taken for the promotion […]

“You Will Fall Madly, Deeply, Truly in love with Croatia” – Second Generation Croatian Diaspora On The Move

    The Croatian diaspora is an endless source of inspiration and hope for the homeland despite the frustrations that constantly arise from a rather stark neglect by Croatia to effectively lead ongoing and consistent campaigns that keep the homeland/diaspora relationship a vital part of the homeland life. As to inspiration and hope, Australian Croatian […]
