as a four-fold study comprising the following sub-projects:
1. Historical Framework for the breakdown of communism:
problems of heritage in the process of re-establishment of democratic
societies analyses changes in the Croatian society within
the new historical and social framework of post-communism. One
of the ongoing activities was a joint research, Social Transformations
in Post-Communism and the Problem of Multiculturalism which
aimed at the comparative analysis of changes in the interpretation
of multiculturalism and was carried out in co-operation with the
