Croatia | Struggle for secular education in Croatia

This autumn a public scandal has shaken the University of Zagreb, Croatia. It has broken out on the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. New elected dean of faculty decided to integrate its curriculum with the Catholic Faculty of Theology. The dean was dismissed after public protest, but his proposal had deeper roots.
