Location: Croatia – , )

Description: Minority Weekend is a new event which we would like to turn into an annual tradition of EGEA Zagreb and possibly other EGEA chapters as well.

The goal of this event is to get in touch with minority groups inhabiting certain parts of Croatia and explore their cultural and economic life, as well as relationships between various ethnicities. We hope this event will help foster better understanding of the problems faced by minority communities.

Minority Weekend 2019 will be held in the Kordun region of Croatia, near the border with Bosnia and Herzegovina, where we will be visiting the local Serb and Bosniak communities in the municipalities of Krnjak, Cetingrad and Slunj. There we will look into places of historic importance for these communities (including the famous Petrova gora monument) and talk to local government officials concerning the issues their communities face today. A survey will also be conducted among the local Serb population in Krnjak, with the goal of finding out facts about the economic, demographic and cultural life of the Serb community in the Kordun region.
