Abstract:
The authors will present first findings of their survey on victimology and victim protection in Croatia, as part of the Balkan Criminology overall victimological mapping of Southeast Europe. The presentation combines empirical and normative approaches while assessing the current state of art in Croatian victimology and victim protection. Victimology in Croatia, just as criminology, has a long history but rather poor tradition in terms of substantial scientific or even normative content. Victimological studies are rare, even if “study” is very broadly and flexibly defined, whereas victimization surveys do not exist at all. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that it has only been rather recently that the term “victim” (žrtva) has been normatively coined in the Croatian Penal Code and the Criminal Procedure Act, whereby Croatia did transpose the EU Victim Directive. However, restorative justice concepts are not well developed in Croatia, although there are two procedures foreseen that might be regarded as restorative justice schemes. Regarding public and media discourse on victims and victimisation in Croatia, in the last couple of years the discourse has been strongly focused on victims of domestic violence, especially women.
