Abstract:
Croatia is a post-conflict, transitional society which is still dealing with many issues arising from the 1991-1995 war. Since the end of the war and peaceful reintegration, Croatia and its institutions have addressed many of these issues, such as rights of war veterans as well as the rights of civil war victims with disabilities, etc. However, voices of victims of wartime sexual violence have largely remained unheard. Only a handful of perpetrators of these crimes were convicted, most of them in absentia, while the screening estimates indicate that there are at least several hundreds, if not thousands, of victims. Most of these victims have not yet received any form of assistance, support or reparation and a great majority has not even been officially recorded. Croatian governments have continuously neglected the needs of these victims, most of which are women. This is contrary to internationally recognized right to reparations, principle of non-discrimination and the right to equal access to justice. Recently, the new government has recognized that resolving this serious problem, stemming from the worst crimes known to humanity, is necessary in order to achieve the goals of transitional justice in a post-conflict society, such is Croatia. The lapse of time, non- existence of criminal reports, lack of evidence and insufficient funds are only some of the obstacles that must be surmounted. This presentation gave insight into the new draft of the law as proposed by ministry of veterans that tries to resolve this question.
