Abstracts
The analysis of the organisational development of the Croatian parties and internal
party democracy has showed several things. First, the organisational aspect
of party life is poorly legally regulated and the attempts to change the situation by
imposing some new and stricter regulations are not likely to succeed. Second, the
Croatian parties do not depart from the common post-communist experience of
party organisational life, with a rather rigid structure, their organisational uniformity
and little substantial change through time. Third, internal party democracy
is generally low, with the strong power centralisation, strong presidents, little participation
of members and selection procedures highly controlled by the leaderships.
Nevertheless, even within such uniform picture it is possible to draw some
differences between the parties. By differentiating between the degree of internal
party democracy and the type of internal party structure, the analysis paved the
way to a more sophisticated strategy for political reform.
