Croatia: The Case Of Journalist Karolina Vidovic-Kristo And A Rude Awakening To Denial Of Human Rights

  One would think that the firing or hiring of a journalist (or any employee, anywhere) is a matter that is not newsworthy and that any breaches of employee’s rights in the process are private legal matters to pursue. However, when the firing or hiring alerts one to blatant breaches of human rights, to the […]

Croatian Campaign “Don’t Touch The Children” Goes Global

    On April 23 of 2014 the United Nations granted special consultative status at the Economic and Social Council of the UN (ECOSOC) to the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction.

Croatian Constitutional Court Abolishes Health (Sex) Education Curriculum

As I have written in my previous posts (see links at end of this article) the sex education curriculum imposed in Croatia early this year saw a nation bitterly divided on issues covered in the curriculum; it saw the Croatian TV journalist Karolina Vidovic Kristo lose her TV show “Picture of Croatia” and suspended from […]

Croatia: Sex On The Brain, Freedom Of Expression In The Drain

While the recently introduced sex education in Croatian schools (about which I have written before) has attracted loud – intermittently laced with profound despair – controversies in community at large, distress and disappointment in many community and parent groups claiming there had not been adequate public discussion or consultation on the issue, serious rows and […]

Croatia: Sex Education Causes Calamitous Rift In Society

Croatian government and the Croatian Catholic Church have been at serious loggerheads, to say the least, since the government announced late last year its new school health education plan, which includes sex education in all its “modern-day” imagery, facets, spectrum. Suffice to say, the government would not budge from its plan to implement the program […]

Picture of Croatia: Vukovar 2012 – 21 years on

To mark the 21st Anniversary of the Fall of Vukovar into Serb hands I have translated most of the dialogue in the above documentary film by Karolina Vidovic-Kristo. The film is notable especially because it covers Vukovar today – it’s children of today, its victims of war, its school system that separates Croatian and Serb […]
