Croatia Human Rights

Human Rights Concerns

The legacy of the 1991-95 wars continued to overshadow human rights. Impunity for war crimes remained widespread and the Croatian judicial system failed to adequately address wartime human rights violations, regardless of the ethnicity of the victims or of the perpetrators. At least 300,000 Croatian Serbs left Croatia or were displaced during the 1991-95 wars, of whom only some 125,000 were officially registered as having returned. Romani children lacked full access to primary education. Reported incidences of domestic violence remained high.
