Education for human rights and democratic citizenship was introduced into the Croatian educational system in 1999, emerging from the National programme of education for human rights and democratic citizenship, a document which combines guidelines of the Concept of education for democratic citizenship from the Council of Europe programme and numerous experiences from European countries in which similar programmes have been conducted for a longer period of time. In the first years of the implementation of the elements of civic education into the curriculum of Croatian schools, The Ministry of Education in the Republic of Croatia imported a lot of knowledge from the experiences of conducting the project “Education for democratic citizenship” which was introduced in 1997 by the Council of Europe.
