Abstract

Popular sovereignty in Croatia can be exercised either by representation, or by direct democracy, i.e. by direct popular involvement in decision making. Following initial overview of legal rules regulating exercise of direct democracy in Croatia, it will be demonstrated that almost complete absence of national referenda over the past eight years of Croatia's independence can be explained by specific political consensus among the President of the Republic, the Parliamentary majority and the Government. I will also present relevant decisions of the Constitutional Court on the point and try to answer to what extent probability of referenda in Croatia depends on institutional balance.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
