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. Political cleanings developed in the university. Violating existing regulations and laws, the President of the University of Zagreb and the University Senate installed a new dean and dismissed the democratically elected student representatives in the Faculty Council hoping to achieve the majority necessary to command the Faculty. A majority of professors in the Council vehemently opposed these moves but to no avail. The Faculty has been taken over by the new management that continually, with the support of the President of the University, dismisses the professors’ attempts to return to lawful procedures, legitimate student representation and normal functioning of the Faculty Council.

Croatia | Students and professors in Zagreb university oppose Catholic offensive

by Saša Vejzagic

“Vlatko Previšić will go down in history as the worst and the most despised Dean ever! – The dean will fall! – Rector Boras is a disgrace!” are just some of the statements made by students at the University of Zagreb in the course of the past few weeks. During this time an extremely serious situation has been unfolding at the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (Croatian acronym – FFZG). Among the biggest faculties in Zagreb consisted of 23 separate departments and serving more than 6000 students. The situation escalated when the Dean hired a private security company to use as his own private army while maintaining an inexplicable and illegal state of emergency at the Faculty. Most recently, security guards unjustifiably enforced a complete lockdown of the Faculty building in the middle of the exam period, thus preventing a student general assembly (known as “plenum”) from taking place. The following day the guards blocked a hallway that leads to the library, the registrar’s office, and some of the lecture halls in order to stop elected student representatives and others not on the list provided to them by the Dean to access the Faculty Council meeting taking place that morning. Since the situation at the FFZG has been heating up for some time now, it is best to begin at the inception of these developments.

Croatia | La Serbie dans l’engrenage européen

Reprint by: HISTORIEETSOCIETE

Le chantage continue, la Hongrie, la Tchécoslovaquie et la Serbie sont obligés de choisir ou conserver de bonnes relations avec la Russie ou l’UE. ET cela va bien au-delà de ce choix, la Serbie qui a déjà subi le primat des Révolutions de couleurs risque comme les autres pays de devoir affronter des révoltes intérieures fomentées par les Etats-Unis et l’UE.
