Documenta – Center for Dealing with the Past

Documenta – Center for Dealing with the Past was founded in 2004 with the aim of encouraging the process of dealing with the past and strengthening public dialogue on the traumatic historical events that marked the 20th century in Croatian and European societies. Documenta is especially focused on the wartime suffering of individuals and social groups, and the victims of ideologically motivated violence in Croatia and the neighbouring countries.

Documenta has worked on building democratic pluralism and a society of peace with a broad network of public institutions, non-governmental organisations and media in Croatia and abroad. Documenta’s activities consist of three basic programmes: (1) Documenting; (2) Public dialogue and public policies; and (3) Improving judicial standards and practice.

The regional office of Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung in Zagreb

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) is the oldest political foundation in Germany, founded as the legacy of the first democratically elected President of Germany, Friedrich Ebert in 1925. Our educational and academic work is based on the fundamental ideas and values of social democracy: freedom, justice and solidarity. In this spirit, we facilitate international cooperation, thinking on social democracy and support the work of independent trade unions.

The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung opened its Zagreb regional office in 1996 and runs projects in Croatia and Slovenia. The main elements of our work are: strengthening democratic institutions, producing, in collaboration with partner institutions in Croatia, concepts of economic and social reforms, providing the forum for inter-ethnic reconciliation and dialogue, supporting and promoting trade union activities and supporting organisations working on the development of an active and pluralistic civil society.
