The report provides a description of the main policy documents, initiatives and actors dealing with
immigrant integration in Croatia. After introductory remarks concerning the context and recent
migration flows to Croatia – which are composed mainly of citizens from the countries of former
Yugoslavia – the report identifies main target groups and the focus of integration measures, as well as
the main policy tools implemented thus far. The third section focuses on forms of engagement by civil
society organisations concerning integration – providing services and various forms of assistance,
primarily to asylum seekers, refugees and persons under subsidiary protection. Given that the main
policy measures are in the early stages of development or planned for upcoming periods, it is
premature to fully assess their implementation. However, since most of the current measures target
asylum seekers, asylum grantees and subsidiary protection beneficiaries it will be necessary to develop
new integration instruments or extend the applicability of the existing ones to different categories of
immigrants, to correspond to the envisaged future role of Croatia as an immigration country.
