Oficjalne ramy polityki pamięci w Chorwacji
OFFICIAL FRAMES OF THE POLITICS OF THE MEMORY IN CROATIA
Languages of publication
Politics of the memory implies formal, normative activities in the public sphere, which are undertook by representative institutions, i.e. the parliament, the government, or local administration. They are intended to create desirable attitudes and hierarchy of values within citizens, in order to maintain the community cohesion. By official frames are understood, above all, legal acts passed by the parliament or local administration, commemorations and celebration of national holidays. Croatian case shows how the official politics creates a narrative which can be seen as a point of reference for every discourse about the past, and in that way it defines the current political scene. The paper shows that in Croatian official narrative dominating categories are the stateness, the idea of continuity of the Croatian state, but an interpretation of the last war is disputable.
